Ukrainian hackers shut down Russia's largest airports — Ukrainian official
The Ukrainian IT army has hacked into Leonardo, a Russian ticket booking system, thereby shutting down Russia's largest airports
This was reported by the head of Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation, Mykhailo Fedorov.
"The IT army is actively working, almost every day Russian websites fail, data leaks, and the work of government agencies is paralyzed. One of the latest cases is the shutdown of the largest airports in Russia. The IT army hacked into Leonardo, a Russian airline booking system," he said.
Fedorov noted that if Ukrainian airports cannot operate because of the war, then Russian airports shouldn't either.
"The IT army is constantly improving, replenishing its ranks and preparing new 'surprises' for Russia. Ukraine will be the winner, including in cyberspace," the minister added.
On the night of 7 August, media reported that pro-Ukrainian hackers had hacked into the website of the Moscow City Bureau of Technical Inventory and shared the obtained information with the Ukrainian Defense Forces.
