Ukraine-Russia conflict: Website to spam Russian email inboxes
A 50-year-old computer expert from Norway, Fabian, has created a website that can spam multiple Russian email inboxes at a time. This service is being used to send out the details of the war in Ukraine to Russians, who are not being provided with true information by their own government.
According to reports, millions of Russians are receiving emails with the subject: Ya vam ne vrag - I am not your enemy. The message in the email is in Russian, which translated to English reads: "Dear friend, I am writing to you to express my concern for the secure future of our children on this planet. Most of the world has condemned Putin's invasion of Ukraine.”
Since the service started about a few days ago, around 22 million emails have already been sent to Russians. This is done by volunteers around the world.
This is another effort by the hacker community to reach out to Russian people and ask them to not participate in the war. Similar services are now being built by multiple hacker groups around the world.
About his idea, Fabian said, "During the Second World War, and in earlier wars, people flew over Germany with leaflets and dropped them out. This is just a more modern way of trying to get people to open their eyes.”
