Hackers from the “Cyberpartisans” group carried out an attack on the computer network of the “Belarusian Railway” company. According to statement hackers, they managed to encrypt the bulk of the servers, databases and workstations of BelZhD. Thus, the “Cyberpartisans” expect to slow down the work of the railway network, with the help of which Russian troops are being transferred to Belarus under the pretext of holding joint exercises.
The statement of the “cyber guerrillas” emphasizes that they did not attack “automation and security systems in order to avoid emergency situations.”
Screenshots from the backup server in the process of their destruction have been published as proof of the successful cyberattack.
The hackers put forward the conditions under which they are ready to transfer the encryption keys. They demanded the release of 50 political prisoners who are most in need of medical care, as well as stopping the transfer of Russian troops to the territory of Belarus.
In Gomel, located close to the Belarusian-Ukrainian border, local residents are “gradually getting used to the movement of Russian military equipment through the streets,” informs Telegram channel “Belarus outside the Moscow Ring Road”. On January 24, a convoy of several dozen military vehicles drove along Sovetskaya Street.
