The services of the Center for Monitoring and Control of Public Communications Networks of Roskomnadzor are on high alert due to the threat of attacks on Russian information resources. This is reported by TASS with reference to the press service of the regulator.
“The on-duty services of the CMU SSOP have been put on high alert, interacting with the National Coordination Center for Computer Incidents to counter attacks on critical information infrastructure,” the press service said.
Previously, hackers hacked a number of major Russian media outlets, including TASS, Kommersant, and Izvestia. Information security specialists from T.Hunter told .ru that the hack was most likely carried out through advertising modules of web resources.
Prior to this, the RKN group of hackers Anonymous declared “cyber war” against Russia because of a special military operation in Ukraine. On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the start of the special operation. According to him, military actions are aimed at the "demilitarization" of Ukraine and the "denazification" of its authorities.
