Russian Military Satellite Operator Disrupted by Cyber Attack
Russian Satellite Communications Operator Dozor-Teleport Targeted by Hackers A prominent Russian satellite communications operator, Dozor-Teleport, has become the focus of a cyberattack claimed by an unidentified group of hackers. The resulting network disruption has had far-reaching consequences, affecting critical services utilized by energy companies, as well as the defense and security services of the country.
The hackers behind the attack have purported to be affiliated with the Wagner Group, a mercenary organization allegedly financed by the Russian military. Interestingly, the Wagner Group was recently associated with a coup attempt led by its commander, Yevgeny Prigozhin, which was subsequently called off, and Prigozhin fled to Belarus.
However, doubts have arisen regarding the authenticity of the hacker group's claims of affiliation with the Wagner Group. The lack of any mention of the attack on the official Telegram channel associated with the Wagner Group raises skepticism about the group's true connection. Regardless of the hackers' actual affiliation, the impact of their actions is undeniable. The disruption caused by the cyberattack has significantly affected various sectors, highlighting the severity and consequences of their work.
