Russia Said Hacking Russian Satellite Infrastructure is an Act of war

The head of the Russian Roscosmos State Space Corporation, Dmitry Rogozin has recently affirmed that Russia will consider any hacking of its satellites as an act of war.

Not only that even Dmitry Rogozin has also confirmed that Russia will treat these cyberattacks as crimes and for such acts the law enforcement agencies will take all the necessary action.

Dmitry Denied Roscosmos Hack

While in recent events it has been claimed by several media that the Russian satellite control centers have already been hacked, but, Dmitry denied all the media claims and reports.

Apart from this, the Interfax news agency quoted Dmitry Rogozin:-

“Offlining the satellites of any country is actually a casus belli, a cause for war.” 

And Dmitry stated to Interfax that:-

“Our Russian agency wanted British-based tech firm OneWeb to provide guarantees that its satellites are not going to be used against Russia.”

However, if it happens then the British-based tech firm OneWeb has to face a major consequence, in which without compensating OneWeb, Russia will straightly cancel the launch of 36 OneWeb satellites from the Baikonur cosmodrome that Russia has rented from Kazakhstan and scheduled on March 4.

Apart from this, here’s what Dmitry Rogozin stated to 24 (VGTRK) television:-

“I want to warn everyone who tries to do it that it is essentially a crime, which should be toughly punished. Because disabling the satellite group of any country is generally a casus belli, that is, a reason to go to war.”

“And we will be looking for those who organized it. We will send all necessary materials to the Federal Security Service, the Investigative Committee, and the Prosecutor General’s Office for relevant criminal cases to be opened.”

But, later the UK Business & Energy Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng respond and affirmed that they are currently in touch with other shareholders to discuss the further steps since the UK Government is not selling its share.

In short, There’s no negotiation on OneWeb.

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
