War: – Russian State Prison: Infiltrated

War: - Russian State Prison: Infiltrated

On Tuesday night, a Twitter user posted a screenshot of an apparent symbol of war seen from two different sides.

In the upper part of the photo there is the flag of Russia in the upper right corner, and it shows a person chasing an entire people.

The lower part shows a single person stopping a large tank with his bare hands. Distinguished work with the Ukrainian flag.

The domain of the site was visible in the upper part of the image: «pda.fsin.gov.ru».

– The website of the “Federal Prison Service (FSIN) of the Russian authorities has been hacked, and now it looks like this, the user wrote in Russian.

– difficult

It is part or similar to a pattern that we are now part of. There are many people, organizations or countries now doing this kind of activity to take a stand in the ongoing war, says Torger Waterhouse, an IT expert and partner at the consulting firm Ooty.

He says it looks like someone has temporarily gained control of the state representative’s domain, and has replaced the content with something that works for their cause.

“From afar, it is always difficult to know what it really means, who is behind it and what consequences it will have,” Waterhouse told Dagbladet.

When asked if he knows who might be behind the hacker attack, Waterhouse replied:

– I think these days there are those who do it, informally or officially, sympathetic to what is happening in Ukraine.

The IT expert believes that we will see many more such attacks in the future if the war continues, but also in future wars and conflicts.

It has to do with everything from tagging something, getting the feeling to do something, and helping to distract attention or hurt someone, says Waterhouse.

He says that similar actions and attitudes are constantly emerging as a result of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia.

It may be “Ukraine’s IT army,” the hacker group Anonymous or the Ukrainian authorities are behind it, says Waterhouse, but adds that it’s hard to know for sure.

– Embarrassed to be beaten

A quick google search leads Dagbladet to the official domain of FSIN which is: http://fsin.gov.ru/while the allegedly hacked domain has pda characters in front of it.

– Can you confirm that this is a real field?

– Yes, it looks like that. PDA probably means “personal data system”, a word that was once used for mobile devices. Waterhouse says this is likely the mobile version of the same site.

He realizes that he doesn’t know this field well enough, but it might be a simple reason to choose this particular site.

You often look for something that might be a little awkward to get to, or a field simple enough to get at, at least if the purpose is to show it off, says the IT expert.

He adds:

So it’s better to take a range that you know you can take over, rather than something you can’t control.

– He has some control

The issue was resolved shortly after the user posted the photo on Twitter.

– That means they’re on. If you can clean it up very quickly, they will have some control. Waterhouse says hackers have had enough control to break into and change the front page, but not enough control to prevent owners from getting it back.

The IT expert says there is no doubt that the Russian authorities are now doing a lot to control the flow of information to the country’s citizens.

It is somewhat difficult to determine exactly how limited the flow of information is. There are many who control the state media, which leads to limited information, but there are more who manage to obtain information otherwise, he said.

Hacking Russian TV broadcasts

– What can you say about threats from Anonymous?

– It’s a very loose set. Although it is so loose that it might be wrong to call it a group. There are people with different motives who want to contribute things, like getting data.

Other causes could be intrusion to control processes, simply disrupting something running, creating queues or problems in general, Waterhouse says.

– They claim To hack Russian TV broadcasts They sent videos from the war in Ukraine.

– Is there reason to believe that they did what they claim?

Yes, there are two reasons to believe they did, but there is also reason to believe that someone might be bragging about doing it, says the IT expert.
