Massive attack on website

By John  Donovan

A massive anonymous effort is underway to kill or hack my website.

According to Jetpack Monitoring, 1,772,611 total blocked brute force attacks were made on the website between Oct 9, 2021 – Nov 8, 2021.

We can only speculate on who might have the motive and any prior form to take such sinister action against a non-commercial entirely free to use highly informative website?

Shell has used cloak and dagger activity against my Shell focussed websites several times, as recently as July 2021.

During my appearance on the Channel 4 TV climate change documentary Joe Lycett vs The Oil Giant broadcast on 24 Oct 2021, I did warn Joe to be on his guard when dealing with Shell.

During almost 4 hours of filming, I informed him about Shell’s decades’ long use of the dark arts. Spying, Industrial Espionage, hiring retired MI6 people, Hakluyt etc.  Yes, it is all recorded on film.  So he probably was a bit rattled by what I had to say.

The day after the documentary was aired, Joe posted this Tweet: Well it’s been a very interesting day. This afternoon I received a tip off that I might’ve been hacked and/or monitored. What curious timing! Someone wants to read mummy’s mails!!!

There is no evidence of which I am aware that Shell is behind the incident reported by Joe Lycett or indeed the latest attack on my main website.

This website and sisters,,,, and, are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia segment.
