‘Anonymous Hackers’ Cyber War Against Russia For Ukraine latest news

Hello Friends In this video, I will talk about a piece of International news which is coming from an Anonymous Official where this group has initiated and took the responsibility for many cyberattacks on Russia due to attack of Russia on Ukraine. They took down many websites of Russia including the website of the ministry of defense and according to the report, they have leaked all the data publicly. Russian hackers are also replying in their own way. The main motive of this video is to give you the news and make you aware that you should stay careful about your security as these things can double cyberattacks in our country as well. Stay safe and follow strict cybersecurity guidelines.

Thursday evening, the Anonymous collective declared a cyberwar against Russia as Putin’s forces closed in on the Ukrainian capital. And it looks like they were serious.

On Friday evening, Anonymous claimed they managed to breach the database belonging to the Russian Ministry of Defence. The group’s actions appear to be part of a growing trend that is seeing a growing number of cyber soldiers take to the newest front in the war against Russia.

Anonymous posted the database online and made it accessible to anyone. “Hackers all around the world: target Russia in the name of #Anonymous let them know we do not forgive, we do not forget. Anonymous owns fascists, always,” the group tweeted.

It seems that the database contains officials’ phone numbers, emails, and passwords. Twitter users seem excited about the news and continue discussing how they could use them to harm Putin’s regime.

“Sign them up for GOP and Trump fundraising emails. That will be enough to drive them all crazy,” one user suggested.

Many encouraged each other to send spam and malware to Russians. The original tweet announcing the leak and containing the link to the database was taken down because it “violated the Twitter Rules”. Anonymous updated their tweet by removing the link.

They said shortly before 10pm: ‘The Anonymous collective is officially in cyber war against the Russian government.’

Around 30 minutes later, they announced that they had taken down the website of the Kremlin-backed TV channel RT, which broadcasts in Britain and has been heavily criticised for its coverage. 

When Mail-Online attempted to access the site this morning, it was still inaccessible and only displayed an error message that said ‘this site can’t be reached’.

The cyber war declaration raises the prospect that Russia could be subjected to systematic hacking attempts in the coming days. 

Prior to the invasion of Ukraine on Thursday, the country’s government and banks were targeted by a massive cyber attack that was believed to have been carried out by Russia.  

People on social media responded positively to Anonymous’s cyber war declaration against Putin.

Hacker group Anonymous has been linked to online attacks around the world aimed at punishing governments for policies of which the hackers disapprove.

Members are known as ‘Anons’ and are distinguished by their Guy Fawkes masks.

The group are seen as anything from digital Robin Hoods to cyber terrorists for their hacking campaigns against government agencies, child pornography sites and the Klu Klux Klan. 

In 2008 the online community staged a series of protests, pranks, and hacks Church of Scientology as part if its ‘Project Chanology.’

Later targets of Anonymous ‘hacktivism’ included government agencies of the US, Israel, Tunisia, Uganda, and others, copyright protection agencies; the Westboro Baptist Church; and corporations such as PayPal, MasterCard, Visa, and Sony. 

In 2013 they declared war on secretive ‘chat sites’ used by paedophiles to trade images.

Last November they hacked into the Twitter account of the Ku Klux Klan after the white supremacist group distributed flyers threatening ‘lethal force’  protesters in Ferguson.

Dozens of people have been arrested for involvement in Anonymous cyberattacks, in countries including the US, UK, Australia, the Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey.
