Thanks Qba73 for this.. Almost 100 hackers have tried to break into Russian President Vladimir Putins new Internet Web site in the first 24 hours of its existence but none has yet succeeded, the Kremlin said on Friday.
And after three months of checks by the Federal Agency for Government Communications and Information, the presidential administration is certain the www.president.kremlin.ru site, unveiled Thursday, is almost hacker-proof.
"Some 500,000 people have visited the site and there have so far been 96 attacks by hackers, but none of them has succeeded," a Kremlin spokesman said.
Hackers try to break into Web sites for a variety of reasons including defacing content and cracking confidential financial information, but the Kremlin did not know what motivated those who tried to penetrate the presidential site.
"It could be anyone, in any country," the spokesman said.
AYAXI, the Moscow-based company which won a tender to build the site after a contest last June, said the site took almost 10 months to construct.
The page contains copies of Putins speeches, new laws and tidbits of presidential news, but visitors can also visit an intimate photo album that includes shots of the president walking his dogs and the Putin familys holiday snaps
