Russian Hacktivists Overwhelm Spanish Sites With DDoS

Infosecurity Magazine

A leading Spanish research institute has become the latest organization in the country to come under cyber-attack from Russia, after a weeks-long DDoS campaign that appears to be geopolitically motivated.

Local reports claimed that prolific hacktivist group NoName057 is responsible for the DDoS blitz, which impacted at least 72 websites between July 19 and 30.

Banks, telecoms providers, media and tourism companies are thought to have been affected by the attacks, which followed a trip by Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez to Kyiv in which he expressed his government’s support for Ukraine.

Victim websites included La Moncloa, the official residence of the PM, the Constitutional Court, the ministries of justice and territorial policy, and Ministry of Defence agency Isdefe.
