Ukrainian hackers attacked the Russian payment system


Hackers  from Ukraine attacked the Russian money transfer system “Golden crown” (KoronaPay). This reports "Kommersant".

On August 28, the resources of the payment system began to be marked as targets for hackers on shadow forums, cyber security experts said.

"Calls to attack the company usually leads to a massive DDoS attack, which is what happened to the payment system, – said one of the interlocutors of the publication.

Experts of the company ServicePipe, which produces products for digital protection, reported that in the work of the “Golden Crown” an attack failed.

Responsibility for the attack on "Golden Crown" took over the "IT-army of Ukraine".

"Golden crown" provides financial transaction services without opening an account and operates on the territory of Russia, the CIS countries, the European Union and a number of other countries.

The system has existed since 1994, but it became especially popular after the start of military operations in Ukraine, when through international sanctions, the sending of money from the Russian Federation abroad and back has become seriously complicated.

In 2022, the Russian payment system “Mir” and its operator, the National System of Payment Cards, suffered similar hacker attacks.
