Anonymous has once again shown which side of the Ukrainian conflict they are on after the group attacked Rosatom’s website, changing the interface on the site and making it otherwise inaccessible.
Rosatom is a Russian organisation who runs 11 nuclear plants across Russia, generating more than 19% of Russia’s power supply.
During the attack Anonymous also gained access to gigabytes of data which they now plan to leak to the public, although the contents of the data collected are unknown at this stage.
Three days after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the ‘special’ military operation into Ukraine, Anonymous declared a cyberwar against Russia.
Since then Anonymous has attacked a variety of websites from both Russia and Belarus, including Russia’s Federal Security Services website which is equivalent to the U.S.‘s Central Intelligence Agency.
In total the hacking group has already hacked 2,500 websites, with plans to continue their cyber war against Russia until the conflict in Ukraine is resolved.
