Russian hackers from the Killnet group brought down the official website of Anonymous
An appeal of Russian hackers from the Killnet group appeared on the Web, bringing down the official website of Anonymous .
Putin during an address to fellow citizens on February 24, announced that he had decided to conduct a special military operation to protect Donbass. He also turned to outside forces that might try to pose a threat to Russia. According to him, Russia’s response will be immediate.
Already on February 25, the Anonymous group declared a “cyber war” against Russia in connection with the situation around Ukraine. After that, they hacked the websites of the TASS news agency, as well as the Kommersant, Izvestia, Fontanka, Mel, and Forbes publications. On the websites of publications, the group published messages calling for a stop to the special military operation to protect Donbass. It was these messages that appeared when trying to access the resource pages.
However, today an appeal of Russian hackers from the Killnet group appeared on the Web. They called on the citizens of the Russian Federation not to believe the rumors and not to doubt the correctness of the actions of the Russian government.
“Greetings to you, Russian people, from a country of friendly union. The Internet is full of fake information about Russian bank hacks, attacks on Russian media servers, and much more. All this is not dangerous for people. This “information bomb” carries only text. And no more harm. Do not fall for fake information on the Internet. Do not doubt in your country,” the appeal says.
Russian hackers also said that they managed to bring down the official website of Anonymous.
“Very soon this conflict will end and we will find peace. Do not be afraid, citizens of Russia, no one and nothing can threaten you. Anonymous hackers, take care of restoring your site, it looks very pitiful against the background of your threats to our country,” the message says
The websites of Anonymous and the Right Sector (an organization banned in Russia) were dropped.
Killnet advised Anonymous to fix their proper server, and Russians not to worry…
