The IP address X.X.X.X (currently hosting domain “X.X.X”) is being used as a Command and Control server which is identified to be used by a targeted hacking attack that is infecting civil society members and compromising their devices.

Thank you very much in advance for your assistance. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards,
