Three of the world’s most powerful and notorious hacker groups have joined forces and vowed to take down the entire European banking system in response to the ongoing support for Ukraine.
KillNet, Anonymous Sudan, and REvil made the unprecedented move of uniting to declare cyber war on Europe.
The pro-Russia hacktivists say they will unleash the attacks, that will ensure Europe has “no money” to support Ukraine, in the “next 48 hours.”
The hackers released a joint video statement about the attack on Wednesday evening.
The groups noted that statement was not a threat, warning that it is “too late to fix anything.”
Russian online newspaper Lenta.ru reported Wednesday that the groups plan to bring Europe to its knees within by sometime on Friday.
In a published video, KillNet, a pro-Russian hacktivist group, made a chilling declaration.
The KillNet spokesman states that the upcoming cyber attack is not a warning but a mere fact.
“You have not faced such issues yet,” the representative of KillNet warned, indicating the severity of the planned attack.
“This is not a DDoS attack, games are over.
“No money – no weapons – no Kyiv regime – this formula will work,” the masked man in the video warns.
KillNet’s leader, who goes by the alias Killmilk, has confirmed to Lente.ru that plans for the attack are already underway.
The attack, he promises, is set to commence within the “next 48 hours.”
According to Axios, KillNet briefly overloaded and took down the websites of some U.S. healthcare organizations earlier this year.
“The DDoS attacks came after Killnet threatened a long list of Western healthcare organizations last weekend in retaliation for continued NATO support of Ukraine,” the outlet reported.
REvil echoed KillNet’s sentiments.
REvil previously hacked the computers of Florida-based space and weapon-launch technology contractor HX5, which counts the Army, Navy, Air Force, and NASA clients.
A representative from REvil stated that the world has gone mad over money, accusing the European banking system of controlling the EU.
“No money – no problems,” the representative of REvil said, further intensifying the tension.
“REvil is sufficiently familiar with Europe’s financial infrastructure.”
Anonymous Sudan also pledged its support for the cyber attack.
Anonymous Sudan was behind the DDoS attacks against the Microsoft Azure portal earlier this month.
The group warned that European financial institutions are about to face the strongest cyber attack in recent history, adding, ” “it will be too late to fix anything.”
“Many European banks will be targeted, and we will hit without mercy,” an Anonymous Sudan spokesman said.
Pro-Russian hacktivist group KillNet, Anonymous Sudan, and REvil announced their plans to take down the entire European banking system within the next 48 hours.
