The FSB has identified several channels for sending false messages about mining sites in Russia


Recently, Russia has been plagued by a real epidemic of phone calls with false messages about bombings or other impending terrorist attacks. "Mine" schools, hospitals, shopping centers, airports.


So, in the morning of January 27, 2020 in Moscow, another wave of mining took place. Messages are received by e-mail, less often telephone calls are received. Allegedly, 10 court buildings, all stations of the Moscow Metro, the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI, and a number of important facilities were allegedly mined. On Wednesday, January 29, mining reports were sent to 5 Moscow schools.

Each such call is the arrival of emergency services. To the place of the alleged mining, the crews of the police, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, ambulance, FSB officers, fighters of the Russian Guard gather. The habitual rhythm of the work of objects is being violated, and most importantly, enormous state money is being spent. The magnitude of the damage is easy to imagine with just one number. Since November 2019 alone, 1,5 million people have been evacuated in Moscow alone. The central telegraph, for example, was “mined” 10 times, and at the metro station, messages about mining are received steadily every week. Therefore, intelligence agencies are engaged in the calculation of such false terrorists.

But it’s one thing when an inadequate person calls the police - mentally ill or in a state of alcohol or drug intoxication, which reports the mining of a nearby store or kindergarten. Here it is calculated instantly and punished according to Russian law. A completely different situation is the centralized reports of alleged terrorist attacks that are received by e-mail. It is more difficult to establish the sources of such messages, and it is practically impossible to deal with them, since all of them are located outside the Russian Federation.

The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation reported that another service had been calculated and blocked, from which anonymous messages about terrorist attacks were sent.

First, counterintelligence agents identified and blocked the Startmail.com service located in the Netherlands. Thousands of anonymous false messages were received from him about the mining of objects in the territory of the Russian Federation. Since November 2019, more than 1000 messages about their mining were received from service boxes only in court buildings. That is, one can imagine the scale of activity of this “machine” of false messages.

But blocking the Dutch service did little. After that, from January 24, 2020, messages began to arrive from the Protonmail.com mail service in Switzerland. The Center for Public Relations of the FSB of Russia reported that from this service there were reports of the mining of 123 objects.

By the way, the authors of the first reports of mining claimed that they would continue their activities until the Russian entrepreneur Konstantin Malofeev, known for his patriotic views, repays the debt of 120 bitcoins, which he allegedly hides so far. The pretext for a mass attack on Russian targets is very strange. Therefore, it is much easier to suggest another reason for regular reports of mining schools, ships, subways, hospitals in Russia.

False reports of terrorist attacks are a component of the information war that has long been waged against our country. More than once, intelligence agencies managed to detect that mining calls came from Ukraine. These calls are actually an easy way to make the state suffer big financial losses, while maintaining an atmosphere of fear in society. Of course, you could stop responding to such calls. But where is the guarantee that in this case real explosions will not sound? No one will give such a guarantee.

      Something does not work for the "men", do not live up to your expectations. Protonmail works great today in Russia. Despite all the resources, billions of rubles and a sovereign Internet.

    How is blocking a service different from simply ignoring it? They do not have the right to ignore, they have to block the service, but what is the conceptual difference?

      “Of course, you could stop responding to such calls (I’ll add from myself: messages.). But where is the guarantee that in this case real explosions will not sound? No one will give such a guarantee.”

          Do not confuse warm with soft. There is no server (in this case, available for such spam mailing) - no problem. A reliable message will be sent on another server, and ignore the active server - comprehend what is written in the article.

              Ah, well now it’s clear. The fighter with a cut.
              Do you write yourself?
              I inform for your employers - to believe messages from certain places is the same as to believe the inscriptions on the fence.
              If, for example, letters from me start sending me from Switzerland that a neighbor is preparing to kill me, I will not believe it with a 100% probability

                Does your word “Roskomnadzor” mean such associations? Why? Are you used to using it exclusively in an abusive context? Don't you think that says more about you than about me?

                Yes, I will not believe a call about mining with the same probability. The question is not this, but why, in one case, no one is ready to guarantee that the explosion will not happen, and in the other - is it ready?

              Those. you naively believe (possibly due to your poor schooling) that spam comes to individuals sitting on a proxy, and not "Since November 2019, from service boxes only in courthouse received more than 1000 messages about their mining. ", in other words, to administrative institutions. Or are they also on proxies, and not official opsos? Teach the materiel if you skipped (underexplored) at school.

                I naively believe that you knowingly record the explosion newsletters strictly in spam, and calls about the same thing for some reason do not. And I wonder why. In one case, no one is ready to give a guarantee, in the other - ready. What is the difference?

                    So what is the difference between blocking a message from simply ignoring it? Why is no one ready to give a guarantee that all messages can be ignored, but ready to give a guarantee that all messages can be blocked? None of your comments have an answer to this simple question.

                      Why is no one ready to give a guarantee that all messages can be ignored, but ready to give a guarantee that all messages can be blocked?

                      Right thought. good So the FSB gives a guarantee that all messages sent from this server are false. But delivered messages cannot be considered false by law, it is necessary to respond.
                      To whom are these messages beneficial? Who is doing this and why? Either someone out of a desire to screw up, or real terrorists? Or maybe someone is training our emergency services and civilian personnel?
                      Many questions.

    Everything is simple with foreign mail servers - the network mailing address is fixed immediately after checking the first messages about false mining, after which the address is blocked, and an online request from the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation should be sent to Interpol to prosecute the server owner as an accomplice to terrorists.

      And what is the locking mechanism?
      The SMTP server will continue to work over the hill and send messages to a server in Russia.
      We put locks on all incoming from this server? But this is the same ignore, only technically difficult to implement. It’s easier on a server in the Russian Federation to add a spam filter. Although this is ignore.

          That is, is there a spam filter in Chinese SMTP? Well, this is just ignoring unnecessary letters to China. But they generally let all external traffic through the firewall. We do not have that.
          And what is the third option then?
          I voiced 2: traffic filter by address and spam filter on smtp server. You just described the second.

    Once hostage-taking and other terrorist attacks were shown live. Freedom of speech, you know ... Then we realized on whose mill such broadcasts were poured water. They banned, sharply reducing the PR effect of such attacks ...
    Now they have found a new, old way of terror, changing the phone to practically untraceable modern IT technologies and using strictly prescribed scenarios of the authorities' response to reports of mines and other terrorist attacks. Obviously, you need to change something in these scenarios ...

    There is still a problem that in Ukraine mobile starter packs are sold freely. Nothing prevents to buy, forward and use it in Russia, there are even free minutes. In Russia, such packages are actively used by organized crime. I bought a cheap phone, called / sent SMS, threw it away. Although I hope law enforcement agencies have found ways to deal with this. Here is my home computer, or rather, the IP address - Topvar.ru has blocked it, but there isn’t yet on the mobile Internet)) though nobody canceled vpn yet)). So we are blocking a bunch of Russian sites, but the desire to find out information, share our point of view, including and on Russian sites in our time it’s hard to block- Yes moderators ???

    Find who sends out and kill. Although no, it is impossible, undemocratic.
    Find, take to Russia and condemn. No, it’s impossible, we abandoned such methods.
    Find and file a lawsuit, the court will impose a fine, 100-200 bucks. Not, also not an option: so much work and everything is essentially wasted.

    Special services exist for that purpose to suppress terrorist activity., Moreover, by different methods and in any country. It’s a pity that our authorities are constantly trying to please the rules of others and are waiting for the approval of Europe for patience and stupidity.
