June 17 (Reuters) – The Kremlin mentioned on Friday that the St Petersburg Worldwide Financial Discussion board had suffered from a “denial of service” cyber assault on its accreditation system, forcing Russian President Vladimir Putin to delay a scheduled tackle by one hour.
Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov mentioned in a name with reporters that the cyber assault had begun on Thursday and disabled the discussion board’s visitor accreditation and admission system, resulting in a number of issues with entry.
He mentioned specialists have been working to repair the issue, and that Putin’s keynote tackle had been moved again to three p.m. (1200 GMT). (Reporting by Reuters; Enhancing by Kevin Liffey)
