Pro-Russian hacker group NoName has claimed to target the website of Raiffeisen Bank, Poland. In a post, the hacker collective claimed to shut down the official website of the bank after the alleged Raiffeisen Bank cyber attack.
“We shut down the website of the Polish branch of Raiffeisen Bank,” the post by the NoName hacker group read. The group also asked others to join their DDoS project and concluded with a “Victory will be ours!” message.
At the time of writing, the website of Raiffeisen Bank was accessible and working. The Cyber Express reached out to the Raiffeisen Bank to comment on the claims. We will update this report based on their reply.
The Raiffeisen Bank cyber attack and other targets
Apart from the alleged Raiffeisen Bank cyber attack, NoName has also claimed to target the websites of Warsaw Metro, Bank Pekao S.A., and PKO Bank Polski recently.
Among other Polish websites, the hackers also named PFR Ventures as their latest victim. PFR Ventures is among the largest fund investors in the CEE region. However, the authenticity of the hacker’s claims could not be verified individually.
“Our attack cannot withstand the largest Polish fund PFR Ventures, cooperating with financial companies in Central and Eastern Europe,” the post claiming the PFR Ventures cyber attack read.
NoName hacker group targeting European nations
The pro-Russian hacker group NoName has been active since 2022.
They focus on political issues and target countries that have been supporting Ukraine in its war against Russia. They have allegedly targeted organizations from Poland, Norway, Sweden, and Lithuania among others.
The group carries out DDoS attacks that disrupt the services by impacting the website of the targeted entities. The attacks are aimed to send a message of retaliation to the targeted companies and nations.
Addressing how the hackers collaborate with other members a Bank Info Security report read, “NoName057(16) coordinates with a number of subgroups to carry out attacks on its targets.”
“One among these groups is DDosia through which NoName provides instructions on how to use a custom tool available on GitHub under the same name,” the report added.
