Attacks on CIA

The Russian Hacking Group also called their subscribers to navigate to the CIA website and fill forms with fake information. This seems more like bullying, then an actual cyber attack.

Future of Killnet

The Killnet Hacking Group remains active. For now, in terms of impact, I don’t have any data to state that their cyber attacks are effective in terms of damage.
