NATO ready for an anti-hacker plan. In the final declaration of today's summit, ample space is dedicated to the topic of security in cyberspace. "We are increasing the resilience of our societies and our infrastructures to counter the malicious influence of Russia - we read - We are improving our cyber capabilities and defenses, providing mutual support in the event of cyber attacks". "We are ready to impose costs on those who harm us in cyberspace and we are increasing the exchange of information and situational awareness, improving civil preparedness and strengthening our ability to respond to disinformation - continues the document - We will also improve our preparedness and readiness for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats. We will make further decisions when we meet in Madrid ”. In addition, the 30 member countries agree "in stepping up efforts to achieve the goal of allocating 2% of the national budget to defense as defined during the September 2014 Summit," announced NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. The 30 allies will present additional plans to demonstrate that they have achieved the goal by the NATO summit in Madrid next June. Index of topics • The crime story of the hacker attack on the Bank of Russia • Sanctions against Russia • In the dark web boom of scam requests for donations for Ukraine The mystery of the hacker attack on the Bank of Russia On the day in which NATO countries decide on anti-hacker strategies and the US and the EU decide on new sanctions against Russia, it is yellow about the hacker attack on the Russian central bank. Anonymous activists announced via Twitter this morning that they had hit the Russian Central Bank. “The Anonymous collective hacked the Russian Central Bank. Over 35,000 files will be released in the next 48 hours with secret agreements ”, it reads. Two subsequent posts also read that Anonymous "is targeting companies that continue to operate in Russia" and that "the state TV channels in Russia have been hacked by Anonymous to convey the truth about what is happening in Ukraine".
A few hours, however, comes after the denial. "The Central Bank of Russia (CBR) was not hacked by the Anonymous collective," reports the Tass agency, reporting the CBR press service's assertions that "none of its computer systems" have been hacked. In recent days, however, the Russian telecommunications authority, Roskomnadzor, had admitted that the number of hacker attacks targeting the websites of Russian institutions had increased "hundreds of times" with "coordinated" operations. Sanctions against Russia Meanwhile, the wait is growing for the new package of sanctions against Russia. The United States is aiming to enact restrictive measures against over 300 members of the Duma, the lower house of the Russian Federal Assembly, and more than 40 Russian defense companies. The administration of President Joe Biden made it known to the US media, specifying that the countries of the European Union and the G7 will also announce sanctions today aimed at preventing Russian officials from circumventing the sanctions already in force. “The basic message - explained by a source from the federal government in Washington - is that we have taken historic initiatives to impose costs on Russia. We now want to make sure we are fully aligned and ensure the greatest possible impact on the measures we have established. The EU and the G7 countries that aim to prevent Russia from bypassing the sanctions are also sharpening their arms. “From this moment on - a Brussels official said - international organizations will no longer have to operate in Russia according to business as usual standards. Today the Minister of the Interior, Luciana Lamorgese, participated in a video conference in the extraordinary meeting of the G7 Interior and Public Security Ministry dedicated to the impacts of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine. . At the center of the meeting convened on the initiative of the German presidency - during which the EU Commissioner for Internal Affairs, Ylva Johansson, also intervened - the management of the flows of refugees fleeing the theater of war that are affecting neighboring countries in the first place with Ukraine and the exchange of information within the G7 on the common front of defense against hybrid threats, with particular reference to cyber attacks targeting critical infrastructures and disinformation with the spread of fake news through the Internet. In the final declaration, the G7 pledges to intensify its efforts to support Ukraine in its defense against any Russian-based cyber attacks. "We are taking measures to increase the resilience of the infrastructure in our nations by strengthening the coordination of cyber defenses - reads the document - We will also work to identify those actors who engage in destabilizing activities in cyberspace responsible". In the dark web boom of scam requests for donations for Ukraine Check Point Research (Cpr) reports that on the darkweb there are numerous announcements requesting donations to Ukraine. While some of these ads are legitimate, others are fraudulent and require donations through cryptocurrencies. CPR therefore warns users because cybercriminals are always looking for a way to take advantage of the high interest surrounding the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. For example, a woman who says her name is "Marina" requests donations through a personal photo. CPR investigated and found that the image was taken from a German newspaper. Then there is an announcement pointing to a legitimate website that has already raised nearly $ 10 million in cryptocurrencies, thanks to donations. The website https://www.defendukraine.org/donate- asks people to "Help the Ukrainian army and its wounded, along with the families and children involved in the conflict." It also refers to the "Defend Ukraine" Twitter account. The domain was registered on February 16, a week before the conflict in Ukraine broke out. The site is very simple and contains a list of several associations and NGOs in Ukraine, as well as cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Usdt). CPR urges donors who wish to help Ukrainians to pay attention to the links they use and the sites they land on to send aid. “There are fake web pages that pretend to want to help the Ukrainian people - explain the CPR experts - On the dark web a person can buy credit card numbers, medicines, weapons and software that can help get into other people's computers. Some announcements are legitimate, while others are clearly questionable ”.
Everyone must be convinced that the best weapons must be adopted in a war, and not limited to the skirmishes between this and that arms manufacturer. Everyone must be convinced that the RSA public and private key encryption system is outdated and easily intercepted as we describe in other pages of this site. It is difficult to understand for those who consider it the TOP of cryptography. I remember when I was in elementary school they explained to me that the Italian alphabet was made up of 21 letters. Later it became 26 letters like the English one, with the addition of J K X Y W. Now no one remembers the 21 letter alphabet anymore. In the field of cryptography, on the other hand, people consider what they have studied to be fundamental and are opposed to any progress. It is as if the supporters of the Italian alphabet of 21 letters waged war and found subterfuges to express the letters J K X Y W. In cybersecurity, nostalgics consider themselves pundits and have brand-persuasion. But then the war is won by the hackers. Read our solutions on other pages of the site.
