As European nations such as Germany, France and Britain are offering a helping hand to Ukraine on recommendation by the Biden led nation, 3 notorious hacking groups -Killnet, Anonymous Sudan and REvil have taken a pledge to conduct a digital assault on the US and European Banking Systems.

A platform has been set by the criminals to launch a major cyber blitz on the financial systems of the developed nations with an objective to achieve- no money, no weapons and no Kyiv.

It is a well known fact that a small nation like Ukraine, that happens to be an immediate neighbor of Russia is retaliating the Putin led military forces with great vigor and valiance. All alone the nation couldn’t have achieved what it has established till date and might have surrendered long back.

Here, a big round of applause must not only be given to Volodomyr Zelenskyy led nation, but the nations that are supporting it with funds, ammunition and essentials must also be appreciated for standing with the Ukrainian populace in tough time.

According to a video posting on a telegram channel on June 13th of this year,  Killnet, Anonymous Sudan and REvil have been assigned a job to disrupt the financial systems of west by launching a DDoS or Ransomware attack by this month end and as per some online resources, the command for assault reportedly came-in from Kremlin.

SWIFT Banking System aka Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication that offers a safe networking gateway for financial transactions is rumored to be the first target of the hackers, followed by Wire, Wise, IBAN, and SEPA.

NOTE– It is unclear when the attack will be launched. However, the news has reached the Interpol who raised an alarm urging the International Banking Network to review its Cybersecurity posture and take necessary action, accordingly.
