Russian Cyber Experts Restores Video-hosting Site RuTube Access

Share post:

Russian cybersecurity experts have finally restored access to video-hosting site Rite RuTube three days after the platform suffered a cyberattack.

RuTube’s homepage packed with video content reappeared on Wednesday evening having been rendered inaccessible since early on Monday morning.

RuTube noted that 99.5% of the video library was available to users to view but the search and comment functions still needed restoring.

To investigate the attack, RuTube worked with several experts including a team from Russian cybersecurity firm Positive Technologies’ Expert Security Centre.

According to the Vedomosti newspaper, a Positive Technologies director, Alexei Novikov stated that it may take as many as three weeks to investigate and respond to the incident given the scale of the attack.

” think the company will draw conclusions from this story and seriously reconsider the approach to protecting its infrastructure. We need our own strong national video-hosting site,” Denis Goidenko, head of Positive Technologies’ information security threat response department, said in a video message on Telegram.
