Cyber attacks on royaldutchshellplc.com
By John Donovan: We had enjoyed a brief respite from the constant cyber attacks on this website, but the main disruptive activity restarted earlier this week. Michiel Brandjes, the Company Secretary & General Counsel Corporate of Royal Dutch Shell Plc had previously issued a denial of any involvement by Shell. However, for a number of reasons, including certain comments submitted for publication on our Shell Blog containing implied threats and reference to hacking, I believe Shell is behind what is going on. Such underhand operations designed partly for intimidation purposes, only make us more determined. We should not be too surprised if Shell is responsible, because for over a decade the company has engaged in a range of hostile covert activity against us. We have the evidence in the form of authentic Shell internal and external communications. It is possible that some of our recent postings relating to Peter Voser, Simon Henry, Matthias Bichsel, and the man in the Shell Hat, may not have been well received.
