Update on cyber-espionage attacks

Screen Shot 2013-03-20 at 17.41.41By John Donovan: High tech sophisticated attacks are still targeting this website every few minutes, day and night. Someone with very deep pockets continues to spend a lot of time and resources trying to disrupt and thwart our activities. The associated threats also continue. I wonder when whoever is responsible will realise that their efforts are counter-productive? The underhand cowardly attacks and the related intimidation only makes us more determined to continue operating this entirely non-commercial website focused on the activities of Royal Dutch Shell Plc. Shell has denied any involvement or knowledge of the covert activity. We are aware that Shell has been in past contact with the National Cyber-Forensics & Training Alliance in Pittsburgh (of which Shell is a member) in an attempt to block our outspoken activities. This was triggered by Shell Oil Company in a panicked reaction to our contact with Bill O’Reilly of Fox News regarding Shell’s linkage with Iran – an extremely sensitive subject.  read more

Constant attacks on the website royaldutchshellplc.com

For over a year we have received attacks on the site in the form of massive numbers of blog entries being received. They have recently reached a level whereby legitimate blogs are crowded out, effectively blocking criticism against Shell.

EMAIL SENT 11 NOVEMBER 2012 BY JOHN DONOVAN TO MR MICHIEL BRANDJES, COMPANY SECRETARY & GENERAL COUNSEL CORPORATE, ROYAL DUTCH SHELL PLC

Dear Mr Brandjes

I would like to bring another serious matter to your attention.

I refer to the constant attacks on our website royaldutchshellplc.com.

There are three strands to the activity.

DENIAL OF SERVICE ATTACKS

The first is denial of service attacks where the site is flooded with traffic. We have upgraded our server a number of times in an effort to deal with these attacks, but the scale is such that even our latest high capacity dedicated server has crashed due to massive spikes in traffic, which cannot be due to normal activity. read more

LETTER SENT TO MR GARY THOMSON, SHELL INTERNATIONAL LIMITED

Because of the royaldutchshellplc.com domain name, we receive job applications, business proposals, pension enquiries, even threats meant for Shell (as supplied today). We deal with all such matters as agreed with Mr Brandjes, sometimes corresponding with the parties on behalf of Shell, occasionally passing on correspondence to him.  We have been offered oil wells and coalmines.
