And the news is out that the threat actors infiltrated the network of the supplier of M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) as is continuously supplying arms and ammunition to Ukraine on request from the Biden led White House.

As per the details available to our Cybersecurity Insiders, the attack took place on August 1 at 7am by Killnet, also known as Killmilk. And the details of the hack are being kept under wraps, as it can cause unnecessary chaos among people and the elected representatives.

Ukraine is using HIMARS to gain back the Russian-occupied territories from Vladimir Putin’s led nation.

Russia insists that Lockheed Martin is a sponsor for world terrorism and stated that the country and its supporters in war handled the death of several innocent Ukrainian nationals.

Killnet divulged in one of its telegram handles that it operations have now shifted from meager denial of service attacks to something meaningful.

Killmilk malware spreading group was also found launching a digital attack on Lithuanian government institutes in June this year along with a steel and iron ore company in Poland.
