State nuclear power company says Russia-based hackers attacked its website

Ukraine’s state nuclear power company Energoatom accused hackers based in Russia of launching a “powerful” attack on the company’s website for three hours on Tuesday, but said the attack had not “significantly” affected operations of the site.

“Today the most powerful hacker attack since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation took place on the official website of the state-owned enterprise NAEK Energoatom. The attack was carried out from the territory of the Russian Federation,” Energoatom said in a statement on its verified Facebook page.

The statement blamed the Russian group “People’s Cyber ​​Army” for carrying out the attack using 7.25 million bot users, who simulated hundreds of millions of views of the company’s main page.
