It is worth saying at this time, that this website, and probably every website in the world, is under constant attack. The majority of the attacks on this site appear to be from sources either based in Russia, or from countries closely aligned with Russia.
I don’t want to overstate this. These attacks are not high level, highly technical and concerted attacks, and for the most part are nothing more than a minor annoyance, but hosting a website has given me a lens on history. I can read in the logs that Russia has been preparing for war for a very long time.
What interest could Russia possibly have in a website with an audience of two? I need only look to what has happened in Western democracy in the past decade for the answer to that question. Russia has used infected servers to act as “bots” or “mules” in the dissemination of black propaganda, and in launching cyber attacks.
No host is too small, or too inconsequential, to be ignored. Every server hosting content on the web is targeted and targeted repeatedly, by the intelligence apparatus of a regime intent on disrupting and destroying, democracy, everywhere on the planet, and in all of it’s forms.
