MOSCOW, November 22. /TASS/. The Russian Central Bank has sent security recommendations to a number of Russian banks afther a series of powerful DDoS-attacks against major lending institutions on November 10. In addition, the results of the analysis of these attacks were discussed at the meeting of the Central Bank and the Communications Ministry in order to develop solutions, press service of the Central Bank told TASS.
The Russian Central Bank earlier warned about a possibility of strengthening of various attacks on Russian banks in anticipation of the New Year holidays.
"The Central Bank notes that attackers’ activity aimed at stealing customers’ money from financial institutions and from financial institutions themselves tends to increase in anticipation of the holidays. Therefore, various types of attacks are likely to strengthen (including newsletters, negative or provocative publications in social networks, DDoS-attacks, malware distribution, etc.) in December 2016," the regulator’s press service told TASS.
On November 10, the Central Bank reported DDoS-attacks on a number of major banks and passed the information to the law enforcement authorities.
In early November, Sberbank fought off a series of powerful DDoS-attacks organized from dozens of countries. According to Vedomosti, Alfa Bank, Moscow Bank (part of VTB), Rosbank, and the Moscow Exchange also faced similar attacks.
