Hacking group NoName057(16) targeted multiple Danish banks in a distributed denial-of-service attack Tuesday causing operational delays in many of the affected banks.
Apparent targets included some of the largest financial institutions, including Jyske Bank and Sydbank. Arbejdernes Landsbank said its online banking system was affected.
NoName057(16) on its Telegram channel claimed attacks on Sydbank, Sparekassen Sjælland-Fyn, Bankinvest, Jyske Bank.
Reuters reported hackers also hit Bankdata, a private company that provides financial technology. The hackers also targeted Denmark’s National Bank, which regained its access after the attack took its website down for a brief period, Reuters reported.
NoName057(16), along with KillNet, is among a handful of cybercrime groups launching DDoS attacks in putative support of the Russian government as it continues its invasion of Ukraine.
