Russian Anonymous take down the website of the Kremlin and the one of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) with distributed denial-of-service (DDOS) attack

According to RT report, the sites kremlin.ru and президент.рф have been unavailable for almost an hour on Wednesday. Also the website of the Russian Federal Security Service, fsb.ru, has also had performance problems throughout the day. The websites gov.ru and government.ru also faced hacker attacks on the same day, but did not go down.

Anonymous tweeted “Kremlin.ru – TANGO DOWN” on their Twitter account, co-opting the military-derived code word to report their successful attack. They also provided screenshots, demonstrating that the site was unavailable in different countries around the world.

“We received threats from Anonymous several days ago but we can’t confirm it’s exactly this group that attacked the Kremlin.ru website. At the moment we can’t establish who’s behind the attack. Unfortunately we live at a time when technology security threats have mounted, but we have the means to resist them.”The Kremlin press-service has confirmed its websites were attacked by hackers.

Russian Anonymous had warned they would attack Russian governmental sites on Monday to show solidarity with the opposition demos.
