Since December 27, we have been victims of (apparently Russian) hackers.
On December 27, I indeed posted a message of support for the Ukrainian people on their president’s Instagram account and within two hours, I was attacked by Russian accounts and bots on social media…then…..
I discovered all this while I was in the Ecuadorian mountains, doing intense climbs…..and 24 hours before my big ascent of 20,550ft!
Fortunately, we have a direct Facebook contact, which allowed us to get in touch with teams specializing in this field.
Despite our privileged contacts, it took almost 10 days for everything to be back to normal. A lot of stress, I assure you!
It’s finally all back to normal: We regained control of our various pages and groups, of our advertising accounts, we removed violent and porn videos, we put back the correct profile and cover images on the pages, and recovered the hidden videos.
We are moving forward….we are regrouping…and we are off to a good start!
Thank you for your support and happy new year to you!
