The Anonymous Group supporting Ukraine in the Russian conflict has compromised, Roskomnadzor the Russian media censoring agency. The hack, reported by HackRead, identified an Anonymous affiliate sharing approximately 820Gb of data from Roskomnadzor that has been shared on the website, Distributed Denial of Secrets (aka DDoSecrets). Since the Russian invasion has started, Russia has censored information regarding the attack with Roskomnadzor playing a vital role, as stated by HackRead, “the Russian government has blocked all key sources of information, particularly news and media outlets, and Roskomnadzor was tasked to block Facebook, Twitter, and other online platforms.”
