Russian Generals are fighting blind as Anonymous ‘shuts down space agency’ and ‘spy satellites’

The global hacking group Anonymous has “shut down” Russia’s “Space Agency” Rocosmos and Russian Generals are fighting blind as they now have “no more control over their spy satellites.”

Over the past few days Anonymous have taken down the Kremlin’s website, government websites and also hacked the TASS news agency and the RT propaganda news agency.

The Director General of Roscosmos, Dmitry Olegovich, have of course denied the claims and called the Anonymous “scammers and petty swindlers.”

Posting a tweet in English, the Director General of Roscosmos wrote, “The information of these scammers and petty swindlers is not true.

“All our space activity control centers are operating normally.”

This comes as the group tweeted, “JUST IN: Hacking group ‘NB65’, affiliated with #Anonymous has shut down the Control Center of the Russian Space Agency ‘Roscosmos’.

#Russia has no more control over their own Spy-Satelites. #OpRussia #OpKremlin #FreeUkraine #FckPutin

“One thing we can never do is underestimate either side of this cyber war,’ Jake Moore, Global Cybersecurity Advisor at ESET, told Metro.co.uk.

“Although this would be a huge defeat in terms of capturing the flag, this would be no easy task and quite possibly would have taken far longer to achieve than a few days since Anonymous said they got involved.

“However, there is also a battle on social media in relation to the spread of misinformation and this can work on both sides to bring down trust or raise a following.

“It is often just as powerful to spread the word than to have achieved the operation being mentioned.”
