European Investment Bank hit by cyber attack after Russian hackers vow to bring down financial system | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

The European Investment Bank (EIB) has been hit by a cyber attack suspected to have been orchestrated by Russian hackers, days after threats to bring down the Western financial system.

An EIB spokesman confirmed it was “currently facing a cyber attack” affecting the availability of some of its websites. The spokesman said the EIB was addressing the issue.

The attack comes days after Russian-speaking hackers threatened to launch cyber attacks against Western financial institutions over support for Ukraine.

A group of Russian-speaking hackers last week said in a post on Telegram they would “rebuff the madmen according to the formula ‘no money – no weapons – no Kyiv regime’.”

The hackers claimed to be from the Killnet gang, which is best known for knocking websites offline through so-called “distributed denial of service” (DDoS) attacks, where attacks flood a website with so much traffic that it collapses.

The EIB is the European Union’s development bank and is owned by member states.
