Pro-Russian hackers are targeting infrastructure inside Ukraine and allied countries

Avast researchers have been tracking a pro-Russian hacker group called NoName057(16) since June 1, 2022. The group — which exclusively carries out DDoS attacks — has evolved throughout the Ukraine war, first targeting Ukrainian news servers and then government-owned websites including utility companies, armament manufacturers, transportation companies, and postal offices. They also have targeted pro-Ukrainian companies and institutions in neighboring countries, including Estonia, Lithuania, Norway, and Poland, with the aim of taking down infrastructure.
