CPO Magazine

A pro-Russian hacking group has carried out a cyber attack on Europe’s air traffic control agency. Eurocontrol said the attack by Russian hacking group Killnet affected its website but did disrupt flights or pose any threat to air traffic.

The group has since claimed responsibility for the attack and vowed to disrupt the agency’s operations for 100 hours.

Killnet targets organizations with distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks by bombarding the target with junk Internet traffic preventing legitimate users from accessing online services.

The European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation (EOSAN), also known as Eurocontrol, coordinates air traffic in 41 countries.
