Rogozin denied the hacking of the Roscosmos control center

The information about the hacking of the control center of Roskosmos and the loss of communication with Russian satellites is not true, declared its head Dmitry Rogozin on his Twitter account.

“The information of these swindlers and petty swindlers is not true. All our space activity control centers are operating normally,” Rogozin wrote. Thus, he commented on the information that the NB65 hacker group, “affiliated with Anonymous”, stopped the work of the control center of Roscosmos.

Anonymous is one of the largest international networks of hacktivists, which since 2003 has been carrying out hacker attacks on various resources in protest against certain actions in various countries of the world. On February 25, this group announced on its Twitter about a cyber war against the Russian government because of a special operation in Ukraine.

The very next day, the Russian Ministry of Digital Development announced an “unprecedented scale of cyberattacks.” In particular, a number of cyber attacks were carried out on the Gosuslugi website. The Kremlin website also functioned intermittently, Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of President Vladimir Putin, told reporters. Roskosmos and other departments reported malfunctions in the site.

On February 28, the websites of the largest Russian media were also subjected to a hacker attack; a message appeared on the resources of publications (Kommersant, TASS, Izvestia, Forbes, etc.) calling for a halt to the military operation on the territory of Ukraine. On March 1, the mayor of the capital, Sergei Sobyanin, announced that various companies and institutions were being subjected to continuous DDoS attacks, which, according to him, were hackers from abroad.

Cyber ​​attacks on the websites of Russian departments and the media began after the announcement of a special Russian military operation in Donbas on February 24.
