Cyberattack on DIPF: Current Status

Cyberattack on DIPF: Current Status
@Christina Morillo -
Jul 25, 2023
After the cyberattack on the DIPF, most services have now been restored. Nevertheless, some functionalities on the DIPF website are only available to a limited extent.

For example, in the publication database only publications up to October 2022 are available. Later publications are therefore not displayed in the database and on the personal pages. We are 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.
