Anonymous has appeared on its Twitter page to say that it has hacked into Russian TV news channels as well as their streaming services to broadcast footages of the current Russian invasion of Ukraine.
This comes after they declared a cyber war on Russia following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The group had also shared today that they were responsible for the hacking of media channels in Russia such as Moscow 24 and Russia 24 to broadcast footages of the war which is currently happening in Ukraine.
Post by Anonymous
Here is the post by Anonymous Twitter which shows that they have successfully hacked into Russian media.
“The hacking collective #Anonymous hacked into the Russian streaming services Wink and Ivi (like Netflix) and live TV channels Russia 24, Channel One, Moscow 24 to broadcast war footage from Ukraine [today]”
At the end of the footage, a message appeared asking Russians to come together to oppose the invasion and said that ‘ordinary citizens of Russia are against the war’.
Addressed message to Putin last month
A month ago, Anonymous have also directed a message to Putin, warning him that his secrets are no longer safe.
Here is a transcript of what was said by Anonymous on the video:
“Mr Putin, the ongoing invasion of Ukraine has shown that your regime has no respect for human rights or the self determination of your neighbours.
In the past several days a full scale invasion has commenced, civilian neighbourhoods have been bombed and innocent people have been killed.
Refugees are fleeing the violence and the population is being forced into conscription by Ukrainian officials.
This is an ugly situation all around but you are the instigator.“
The video then says that the entire globe can see through Putin’s propaganda and Russians are also criticising him.
It then showed protests against the war in Russia and also threatened to carry out cyber attacks from all around the world.
The next part of the transcript says:
“Members of Anonymous have declared cyber war against your aggressive regime, with numerous government websites being taken offline in the past several days.
A few downed websites is only the beginning, though. Soon you will feel the full wrath of the world’s hackers, many of whom will likely reside from your home country.
Your secrets may no longer be safe and there is a chance that key components of your government’s infrastructure could be hijacked.”
Anonymous then ended with:
“The people of the world will resist you every step of the way. This is not a war that you can win, regardless of how powerful you think you are. We are Anonymous. We are legion. Expect us.”
