Notorious hacking group Anonymous seems to have declared a “cyber-war” against Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Govt. after he launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.

The declaration of a cyber-war increases the chances that Russia is targeted with systematic hacking attempts in the coming days or weeks

The hacktivist group issued an announcement on their Twitter account Thur. evening, Feb. 24, writing, “The Anonymous collective is officially in cyber-war against the Russian Govt.”

Inaccessible

Later, they revealed they had taken down the website of Kremlin-funded media channel Russia Today or RT. Earlier reports claimed their website was inaccessible & displayed an error message. However, the site appears to be back online now.

The declaration of a cyber-war increases the chance that Russia is targeted with systematic hacking attempts in the coming days or weeks. Ukraine’s Govt. & banks faced a massive cyber-attack before the Russian invasion on Thur., believed to have been conducted by Putin’s Govt.

The hacktivist group’s declaration comes as a response to the same.

“Anonymous doesn’t pop up often, but when they do, it’s always to carry out some cool sh–,” activist Charlotte Clymer added.

“I’ve always wished hackers would use their power for good,” a Twitter user wrote.

“Revenge of the Nerds!” another commented.

“It’s starting. This is the end of Putin,” someone else offered.
