From the past two days, speculations are rife that Russia could launch a possible cyber attack on the critical infrastructure of various companies, including those operating in the technology sector.

Kremlin reacted to the news in the late hours of Tuesday and rejected the claims made by the President Joe Biden that Putin was preparing to conduct a cyber attack campaign on west to retaliate the western sanctions. 

Dmitry Peskov, the spokesperson, denied the speculations that his nation was going to indulge in state-level banditry and warned that the accusations were false and were those in circulation was disinformation planted by some media agencies funded by west.

Meanwhile, a member from Anonymous Hacking Group claimed that his team of threat actors has hacked 4 of the Russian government websites- Moscow.ru, Analytical Center for the Government of the Russian Federation, and the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation, along with Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), a successor to Soviet Union’s KGB.

Shockingly, Anonymous released a set of digital documents that claim Putin is going to cut down forests in Ukraine and will sell them to private firms, after taking control of territories of the Zelenskyy led nation from all sides. The documents leaked on Twitter reveal that the Russian president was disclosing his future intentions to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and the conversation was recorded by a western hacking group that was always busy spying on Putin’s whereabouts on a digital note.

Note- On March 15th this year, Anonymous claimed to have infiltrated the database of Russian media censorship agency Roskomnadzor Federal Agency to steal about 340,000 files. The siphoned data was then published on a website titled Distributed Denial of Secrets (DDoSecrets) and is now available for sale.
