The Central Bank of Russia has been attacked by Anonymous hacker gang, and they are planning to release 35,000 files. The group confirmed through a statement on Twitter, “The Anonymous collective has hacked the Central Bank of Russia. More than 35.000 files will be released within 48 hours with secret agreements.”
Earlier, the cyber collective Anonymous gained access to the website of Rosatom, the Russian state nuclear energy organization, and exposed terabytes of information. The corporation’s official website was temporarily unavailable. Hackers also targeted Russian NPP operator Rosenergoatom and the All-Russian Research Institute for the Operation of Nuclear Power Plants (VNIIAES).
A new HTML page with a message to Russian President Vladimir Putin – #FCKPTN – was added to each of these sites. “And before you ask, no, it wasn’t the nuclear plant that was hacked, we will never endanger anyone’s life. The site was hacked,” Anonymous clarified on Twitter.
One month has passed since Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated his “special military operation” against Russia’s eastern neighbor, and there is no indication of an end in sight. Despite denouncing Russia’s actions, NATO, the EU, and other nations hesitated to participate in the conflict directly.
However, they agreed to begin imposing different sanctions on the aggressor, its leaders, and, eventually, its people, most of which were monetary. Several multinational firms have quit supplying Russian clients, including Apple, Ikea, Nike, Shell, PayPal, Goldman Sachs, Mastercard, Visa, etc.
They have attacked again, this time hacking the Russian Federation’s central bank and threatening to leak thousands of critical documents. Moreover, the gang continues to urge international corporations that have not yet withdrawn from Russia that they should do so or risk being hacked next.
