Anonymous launches cyber war on Russia and has disabled several websites

Hacking group Anonymous has declared ‘cyber war’ against Vladimir Putin’s government in response to his invasion of Ukraine.

The collective then said it had disabled several websites of Russian government, the Kremlin, the Duma, and the Ministry of Defence.

It also claimed to have taken down the website of Kremlin-backed TV channel Russia today, which broadcasts in Britain.

Earlier this week the news network was described by Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer as Putin’s ‘personal propaganda tool’.

When Metro.co.uk attempted to access the site this morning, it said it was inaccessible and displayed an error message saying ‘this site can’t be reached’.

3. If their statement is true, it's no wonder the media can't get much info from Russia

There have been comments about the lack of information from Russia on several news sites



Such as:

AP: NEW YORK (AP) — For journalists, the confusion surrounding Russia’s attack on Ukraine deepened the challenge of covering it — and made one CNN reporter’s stumbling upon an airport under attack Thursday all the more remarkable.

While Russia’s invasion had been an ominous possibility for months, it unfolded with little reliable information from the attackers. Many reporters depended upon sporadic audio and video of bombs exploding in the distance, and details from Ukrainians and American intelligence, to try to tell the story of citizens in a Western-styled democracy suddenly plunged into war.

27. I find that Google Chrome doesn't load RT.com at this time,

 

but other browsers, such as Brave, do.

So this is not DDoS. Perhaps it is not "Anonymous" if such an anonymous anarchist organisation exists. But it certainly involves Google's software.

someone in that collective should start doing the same to some of the right wing sites in the United States.

24. They're pro free speech and anti-violence. And as with Rove & OH, they're anti-cheating.

They don't care what bad guys say; they just show up when bad guys act.

9. They claimed to have fked-up KKKarl Rove's computers in Ohio in 2008

which gave us Obama instead of Rmoney. IIRC, Rmoney didn't even have a concession speech written because KKKarl assured him it was in the bag.

Obama-Romney was a landslide and Obama would have won without Ohio.

25. Well, this is cool but...

Conducting a DDoS attack is pretty straightforward (as hackers go). I'd like to see Anonymous getting into Russian banks, power systems, the military and other important systems and really bring down capabilities.

28. Don't you worry: Wikileaks still has Russia's back.

After Wikileaks published the Panama-Papers, a russian official casually mentioned on TV that if Wikileaks were to try something like that on Russia, russian agents would simply murder everybody at Wikileaks and be done with it.

So, what did Wikileaks do next?

They moved their databases to servers in Russia... to a back-alley warehouse in Moscow... owned and operated by a well-known russian cyber-criminal who hosts scammers and hackers on his servers... and russian law-enforcement is somehow ignoring this criminal living in the middle of Moscow and allows him to go about his business...

30. Bless their hearts, although I suspect they had some private "help" from those who do not want to

take responsibility for it. Nevertheless, good for them!
