IOC urges Russia to stop cyber attacks against WADA

The President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Thomas Bach, called on Russia to stop hackers who are revealing the information about the use of illicit drugs by athletes from other countries, as reported by the Associated Press.

According to Bach, the Committee will help the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) to raise the problem of hacker attacks with Russian authorities.

The Anti-Doping Agency said that the database hacking is a revenge for the publication of the investigation about Russian Secret Services’ support of doping use during the 2014 Olympics.

The group of hackers called Fancy Bear unveiled three sets of documents indicating that the WADA allowed some Olympic athletes to use doping for therapeutic purposes.

The U.S.A. has connected the Fancy Bear group with Russian authorities. The Kremlin rejects these accusations.
