The Anonymous collective continues its cyber war on Russian businesses and government organizations. Below is the list of the most recent organizations targeted by the collective that also leaked stolen data through the DDoSecrets platform:
Anonymous is also working to inform Russians about the crimes committed by its Army in the barbarian invasion of Ukraine. The hacking group @squad3o3 claimed that over 100 million messages have been sent from its services to Russia to fight Moscow’s propaganda.
This week the collective of hacktivists Ukraine IT Army has launched a series of massive DDoS attacks on Russian targets causing severe problems. Once of the targets of the attack was the Unified State Automated Alcohol Accounting Information System (EGAIS) portal, which is considered crucial for alcohol distribution in Russia.
The attacks on the EGAIS websites took place on May 2 and 3 and failures were reported on 4, a call to action to attack the site was shared within the community of IT Army of Ukraine.
Due to the effects of the attack, factories cannot accept tanks with alcohol, and customers (both stores and distributors) were not able to receive finished products that have already been delivered to them,
Many factories halted shipments to warehouses completely and subsequently cut their production rate.
This week Crowdstrike researchers reported that Pro-Ukraine hackers, likely linked to Ukraine IT Army, are using Docker images to launch distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks against a dozen websites belonging to government, military, and media agencies. The DDoS attacks also targeted three Lithuanian media websites.
The attackers attempt to exploit misconfigured Docker installs through exposed APIs and takeover them to abuse their computational resources.
