Police are investigating a cyber attack on the Sky Blue Trust website.
The attack has originated from an IP address in Kensington, London and comes after Trust members and City supporters were in that area of London, highlighting the plight of the club with Sisu Capital Limited on Thursday and the canvassing of views on future ground arrangements including groundsharing within a fifty miles radius.
The Trust have issued the following statement asking for anyone with information on this to come forwards:
"The Sky Blue Trust website and email system has been subjected to a cyber attack over the last few days.
We apologise to members and other contacts who may have suffered inconvenience as a result of this incident.
However we can reassure members that our website and the survey have been protected due to the safeguards we have in place.
The origin of the attack has been traced to an IP address based in the Kensington area of London. Evidence gathered has now been presented to the Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit.
It appears likely that this malicious act was designed to disrupt the collection of supporters' views on future ground arrangements.
However we can confirm that this attack did not affect the current survey on the questions posed by the EFL. For security reasons that is hosted separately from the Trust website and email system.
We ask that anyone with information relating to this attack contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Metropolitan Police Cyber Crime Unit quoting crime reference number NRFC 190302873708."
