The Russian YouTube clone is back, although it will never return

Must read

The hackers who attacked Rutube said that the site may never come back to life. Administrators restored it three days later.

On Victory Day, May 9, hackers from the Anonymous team attacked the Russian copy of YouTube – Rutube. After the attack, they reported that they deleted or destroyed 70 percent of the data on the primary server and 90 percent on the backup servers. They also found that at this scale of losses, Rutube will probably never be recovered.

Rutube is alive

Three days later, on the evening of May 11, the Rutube service was restored. Administrators reported that they successfully restored the entire video library. Currently, work is underway on the ability to comment and search for videos.

In the information posted on Telegram, the administrators denied reports that the source code of the site has been destroyed and cannot be restored. Rutube also turned to law enforcement agencies with a request to initiate a case into the incident. The administrators found that the attack was technically complex and exceeded the complexity of the previous attacks that Rutube had been subjected to on numerous occasions.

The Rutube service has been operating since 2006 and is owned by Gazprom Media.
