Dear partners and journalists,

we would like to inform you that on November 11 at 7 p.m. someone hacked Transparency International Ukraine’s e-mail system. Therefore, we ask you to ignore any emails received from our accounts after 11:00 on November 18.

We will update you regarding our e-mails after we resolve the situation. Хаbаrdoks has stated that any e-mails and chats with representatives of Transparency International via the Xabardocs system were not compromised. It is impossible to access any e-mails sent by whistleblowers to Transparency International Ukraine’s office via the Xabardoks platform. All e-mails are automatically encoded during upload and require a secret encryption key. Moreover, messages and chats are automatically deleted after a short time. Neither government services, private companies, nor Xabardocs administrators have the capability to track the messages.
