MOSCOW, December 2. /TASS/. Foreign special services are preparing to carry out massive cyber attacks starting from December 5 aimed at destabilizing Russia’s financial system, the Federal Security Service said on its website on Friday.
The goal of the cyber attacks is also to destroy the activity of "a range of major Russian banks," according to the FSB.
The servers and command centers for carrying out these cyber attacks are located in the Netherlands and are owned by Ukraine’s hosting company BlazingFast.
The cyber attacks are expected to be accompanied by mass SMS and provocative publications in social networks or blogs about "a crisis in the Russian credit and financial system, bankruptcy and withdrawal of licenses of leading federal and regional banks."
"The campaign is directed against several dozen Russian cities," the FSB stressed.
The FSB is carrying out the necessary measures to neutralize the threats to Russia’s economic and information security and documenting the forthcoming campaign, it said.
