Last year, the group was mentioned in a warning from the Five Eyes coalition, made up of intelligence agencies in the UK, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand, over cyberattacks on critical infrastructure following the invasion of Ukraine. A separate report from the US Department of Health said Killnet had made threats against public health organisations, including in the UK. However, it was reported that the threats should be taken with a “grain of salt” due to the group’s “tendency to exaggerate”.

Buckingham Palace has not yet commented on the attack.
