Killnet claims their attacks on Estonia have impacted over 200 financial services

The president of Estonia, Alar Karis, asserted during a show that his official website was the victim of violent cyberattacks. Rumors in the media claim that the pro-Russian hacker organization Killnet was responsible for the cyberattacks against Estonia.

The presidential office has previously been the target of cyberattacks. He continued that the onslaught was fifty times more intense than the last one, and the Estonian government agreed.
The executive director of CERT Estonia, Tonu Tammer, said that a DDoS attack had previously been made against the presidential website.
The analysis claims that the attackers made over 40 million tries to access the website. Even if the President of Estonia is well-known and adored, this level of curiosity is not normal nor natural.

Tammer asserted that there have been twice as many cyberattacks against Estonia since the Russian-Ukrainian war. He asserted that the country was the target of numerous cyberattacks between April and May.

The cyberattack carried out in May on Estonia was directed by Killnet. Tammer predicts that assaults like this will continue for a very long time. The Estonian government and people will need some time to get ready for this, he said.

Amidst all these, On July 4, a memorial commemorating the designers of adjacent power stations was destroyed in Narva. Despite earlier warnings and concerns from other countries, Estonian officials decided to remove and relocate World War II memorials from the Soviet era in the border city of Narva. Engineers began dismantling a tank from one memorial in Narva early on August 16 while a sizable security force kept watch, according to Estonia’s state television ERR. And for the same Hackers from Killnet took revenge on the Estonian authorities for demolishing the monument to the Soviet T-34 tank in Narva. Among those affected by Russian cyber sanctions are the largest banks and payment systems, home services, healthcare and education services, public services, and much more.

Killnet claims their attacks on Estonia have impacted over 200 financial services.
