The Killnet hacking group, is pro-Russia and they mainly perform denial of service attacks on governments and private companies.
Killnet formed around March 2022, the hacking group has a Telegram channel, on which they share targets and pro-Russian messages. The Telegram channel currently holds 91 thousand subscribers.
On the 4th of November, Killnet carried out various DDoS attacks against airports located in The United States.

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.
