NATO unleashes cyber war

NATO unleashes cyber warLast week, a number of Russian sites were subjected to hacker attacks. Among them: the site of the President of the Russian Federation and the Bank of Russia. Also reported on the disruption of the websites of the First Channel, the Russia Today TV channel, the Izvestia newspaper, the Rossiyskaya Gazeta newspaper and the Life News online publication. Responsibility for carrying out information sabotage took the Ukrainian hacker group, which calls itself "cyber attack".

For the first time, this team of Internet activists announced 14 in February, creating their group on the Facebook social network and publishing a manifesto. In their first appeal to the citizens of Ukraine, community members promised to use the Internet’s capabilities "within the legal framework" to overthrow the "criminal regime" in Ukraine and ensure "honesty, respect and justice for everyone". Among the reasons that prompted Ukrainian hackers to start their “liberation struggle”, the “almost zero level of legitimacy, fairness and competence of the entire state apparatus in Ukraine”, deceitful Ukrainian media and the low level of culture of many authorized persons were also mentioned.

Less than a month since the creation of the group, as announced goals began to radically diverge from real actions. First, a hacker attack on an Internet resource is a criminal offense, which means that the cyber attack has already gone beyond the legal field. Secondly, at that moment, when the issue of legitimacy, competence and culture of power in Ukraine really became relevant, the “cyber security”, instead of defending the rights of Ukrainians, switched its activity to Russia. A natural question arises: have the Ukrainian media ceased to lie? Or are the pro-fascist views of the new Ukrainian government more conducive to “justice for every man” than the oligarchic regime of Yanukovich?

Of course not. Ukrainian media remained in the hands of the same oligarchs. The nationalist position of the current government is much more dangerous for the people, and the majority of Ukrainians have already managed to feel it. This means that the group of hackers who call themselves “cyber-torny” does not care about ordinary Ukrainians. It is very likely that they themselves are very far from Ukraine.

This is confirmed by the message of the press service of the site of the Crimean referendum, which also underwent a DDoS attack (an attack on a computer system to bring it to failure). According to experts, the site was attacked from the University of Illinois, located in the cities of Urbana and Champaign in the USA. It was from there, according to Ukrainian computer scientists, that servers were scanned before the attack.

It is noted that in the city of Urbana with a population of 37 thousands of people there are a large number of subnets that significantly exceed the needs of the city. In addition, the city has three airports. It is likely that one of the headquarters of the NSA may be located on its territory.

In addition, social networks actively discuss the regular blocking of links to video materials containing evidence of the actions of foreign mercenaries and snipers during the confrontation on the Maidan. Such censorship is available only to US intelligence agencies that have access to the servers of such giants as Facebook and Google. Mechanisms for conducting special operations using access to these resources were disclosed in detail by former NSA agent Edward Snowden.

The fact that the cyber base serves only as a cover for the American special services, says another Ukrainian group of hackers, calling itself Cyber ​​Berkut. According to data published on their VKontakte page (, at the request of the “Kiev junta”, staff of the NATO NATO Cyber ​​Center are working in Ukraine. “The entire color of NATO’s cyber leadership, led by Colonel Arthur Suzikom, arrived in Kiev to help the maydauns,” Ukrainian hackers say, declaring war on the new Kiev neo-fascist nationalist government backed by Washington. This information was confirmed by the Ukrainian Front public movement, reporting that a group of NATO experts had arrived in Kiev to coordinate e-war against Russia. Under the guise of "protecting" the websites of state bodies of Ukraine, this group began a systematic clearing of the Ukrainian Internet from anti-fascist websites, websites of oppositional public organizations, independent mass media, as well as conducting computer attacks on Russian websites, including websites of banks, authorities, mass media information.

Colonel Arthur Suzik is a graduate of the Leningrad Higher Military Engineering School of Communications, which changed his oath and, having received training at the School of Communication in the United States and the Academy of the General Staff of the United States, now heads the NATO NATO Cyber ​​Center.

In confirmation of the seriousness of its intentions, CyberBerkut 15 March launched an attack on NATO sites. DDoS attacks were launched at (NATO Parliamentary Assembly), (Center of Excellence for Joint Protection against Cyber ​​Threats), and the main website of the alliance. “We are appealing to NATO cyberbandits:“ Get out of the Ukrainian land! ”- the hackers report says. NATO spokesman Oan Lungesku has already confirmed that there are problems with the services.

It is worth noting that it was CyberBerkut that earlier announced the sensational telephone conversation between EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton and Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet. From this record, it became known that the snipers operating on Independence, were hired by opposition leaders.

      This is not even the point. Just the failure of the site in Russia does NOT cause any damage to the organization. Even a jar. People here are used to the fact that something may not work and it does not cause panic. In the USA, disconnecting a client bank for half a day will put an end to the reputation of the bank, and in our country it’s normal

        It is necessary to connect the Chinese. They have fairly large cyber connections. Both at the state and public levels. And then, no matter how the banderlogs and their American instructors spit in our direction, we will smack. But when we and the Chinese spit on them, they will drown.

    It would be time for Russia-China-Venezuela-India-Syria-Serbia-Belarus-Brazil to be puzzled and extend their lines of the "Alternative Internet", building it on the latest principles of building electronic architecture, without providing for its connection to the regular Internet.
    Place all training and forming units in the Crimea to counter hacker attacks. Crush the Ukrainian Internet sector with our DDoS attacks.

        They do not give up control over the network, but control the issuance of domain names. This is how to send troops into the city, but to allow residents to name the streets at their discretion. Concession purely for show

      You don’t need to pull anything anywhere, unless a separate fiber is in the Crimea. The Internet is actually the root DNS servers and secure information stores. Everything else is the end users, whether it’s an underage kulhacker, whether it’s a large corporation.
      Those. all that is needed is the creation of secure alternative DNS servers and secure data centers.
      To protect the Crimea from cyber attacks, you do not need to place anything there. It could be anywhere. By the way, we, in Russia, have left a sufficient number of abandoned military installations, protected even from nuclear bombing. They just need to be subordinated to the appropriate structures and invest (not very much) means for their restoration and modernization.

        It is not entirely clear what kind of "secure storage" you are talking about.
        Mirrors of root DNS in Russia and so it is. Only your thought is not entirely clear to me. Do you offer to create your own Internet without access to foreign servers? What for?

    Yesterday at the "Sunday evening" it was pleasant to see how representatives of all parties, for the first time, perhaps did not go out, but in a businesslike manner discussed and proposed reasonable steps for Russia in the near future. Now is a unique time for economic recovery, for the restoration of agriculture, in the light of all kinds of future sanctions and bans from the West. Zheleznyak correctly said that it is necessary to monitor all regions, find out who can produce what and where, and restore its independence from Western production, including food! recent events have shown how a "national idea" is needed! After all, we know how to be united when necessary! So why not use THIS to accomplish an "economic miracle"? Enough for the country to tax and resell Chinese clothes! It's time to WORK! it is necessary to return the times when they were punished for parasitism !!! unemployment is a product of the west! hi

      I completely agree, With both hands for! Today I climbed up on the city site and on you: the factory, which before the perestroika made ammunition for the MLRS, and then sat without orders for 20 years, received a state defense order for ammunition, and the volume is such that the capacities were loaded on 5 years in advance, new jobs appeared . hi

    Nato unleashes a cyber war

    Yeah. Perhaps someone’s very itchy ass.

    France threatened Russia with termination of the Mistral deal

    Fabius called the situation in Crimea "the biggest crisis since the Cold War" and said that "does not rule out a military response to Russian actions".

    It was the valiant warriors who were draping, in due time, ahead of their own screech, fertilizing the French land with their own shit. And that one.

    This link is not working (404 gives out), I already thought that the contact with the NSA was bogged down. But no, the group found another link (it would be nice to update the article)

    CyberBerkut stops attacking defenseless NATO resources

    We, CyberBerkut, declare the end of the DDoS attack on the resources
    . We draw the attention of European taxpayers to the useless waste of YOUR money to ensure the notorious cyber defense. If NATO cannot protect its resources, then protection of the personal data of ordinary Europeans is out of the question.

    Oh, it seems to me in vain they started it! Still, they are more dependent on computer networks than we are. They even have toilets in the network. Can you imagine what will happen if they all rebel at once? But seriously, then this is another genie, released into the wild ... And so in vain they contacted our programmers. Steeper they are not. The same may be. But steeper - no. I have many examples in my memory ...
    I personally expect some kind of resonant response from ours. They will definitely perform something loud. And very soon ...
