Cyberattack on DIPF: Current status

Cyberattack on DIPF: Current status

Jul 25, 2023
After the cyberattack on the DIPF, many but not all services have been restored. Staff is still working on rebuilding the missing structures.

Some functionalities of the DIPF website are only available to a limited extent. For that reason, it is currently not possible to display recent publications on personal pages. The publications data base is up to date as of September 2022. We are currently working on a solution and ask for your understanding.

Despite all security precautions, the DIPF was the victim of a cyberattack (double extortion ransomware attack) in October 2022. The Hessian Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information and the relevant investigating authorities have been notified. The DIPF has reported all criminal offences committed in connection with the cyber attack to the police.
