Russian industrial conglomerate Rostec, has encountered a cyberattack causing its website to be briefly taken offline. This new story is reported by BleepComputer, with the impacted aerospace and defense firm stating it’s encountered consistent attack activity since late February. A statement from Rostec shared, “we had to briefly close the website. The attack has been repelled, and now the website is functioning again and all information about the corporation is available in full.” The attack appears to be attributed to the IT Army of Ukraine, as the group’s Telegram channel lists attributes of Rostec’s internet infrastructure as targets for DDoS attacks.
