It is clarified that DDoS attacks on army online stores were organized by “motivated hacktivists” who sought to disrupt store websites and make it difficult for people to buy goods. According to experts, the “hacktivists” tried to “prevent partial mobilization in Russia.” In addition, according to the cybersecurity company, calls for attacks on army online stores, as well as lists of store websites, were published “in the Telegram channels of the IT army of Ukraine.”

“We regularly observe DDoS attacks by hacktivists on the e-commerce sector, but this is the first time we have detected attacks on army stores in our many years of practice. Since there were no such attacks before, online stores were not prepared for them and turned out to be completely helpless in this situation “, – the words of StormWall co-founder Ramil Khantimirov are quoted in the message.
