A hacker attack on various Italian institutional portals has been underway since 10 pm last night. The news is confirmed by the Postal Police itself, which is working to protect the sites. The Russian collective Killnet claimed responsibility for the cyber offensive, which – according to what it writes on Telegram – would have targeted the sites of the Superior Council of the Judiciary, the Customs Agency and the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Education and Goods Cultural.
The Killnet collective launched the Ddos attack late yesterday, indicating a long list of targets on its Telegram channels, about fifty in all, including ministries, companies, guarantee authorities, media, judicial bodies. «Fire at all» wrote the hackers who in a previous message had given instructions «to liquidate the Italian information structure», asking for an attack for 48 hours and not to hit the health system.
