Rostec says its website came under cyberattack

Russia’s state corporation Rostec revealed that its website was exposed to a cyberattack. The statement said the website had been temporarily inaccessible, and the attack was repulsed. Rostec added that cyberattacks on their website have been occurring almost daily since the end of February.

Rostec attributed the cyberattacks to ‘radicals from Ukraine’. The ‘radicals’ are presumably the newly-formed Ukrainian IT Army, a volunteer group that targets Russian state organisations,since Rostec domains and resources were previously designated as targets for distributed denial of service (DDoS) assaults by the Ukrainian IT Army Telegram channel.
