On the morning of October 16, 2023, the website of the Syrian Network for Human Rights (SNHR) was the target of a series of ruthless and sustained cyberattacks. These attacks, which took the form of a DDoS that aimed to completely shut down the SNHR site, lasted for over three hours.

DDoS, or Distributed Denial of Service, attacks focus on exhausting a website’s online resources, such as its cyber infrastructure, with the aim of taking it offline. DDoS attacks are carried out by sending a massive number of requests to the provider in order to exhaust its request-processing capabilities, thereby rendering it not properly functional for a certain period of time.

Thanks to our IT team’s prompt reaction and expertise, however, SNHR was able to fend off this attack and swiftly restore our website’s functionality.
