DIU hackers completely destroy IT infrastructure of IPL Consulting, which worked with the Russian defense industry
The DIU cyber specialists have dealt another powerful blow to the Russian Federation. They destroyed the IT infrastructure of more than 60 terabytes, dozens of servers and databases of the Russian company IPL Consulting.
This company specialized in the implementation of information systems in the Russian industry. The details were published on the Telegram channel of the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine.
"The Defence Intelligence of Ukraine informs about another successful cyberattack in Russia: the entire IT infrastructure of IPL Consulting, which specialized in the implementation of information systems in the Russian industry, has been destroyed," the statement said.
Ukraine's military intelligence emphasized that the Russian company attacked by Ukrainian hackers specialized in the implementation of information systems in Russian institutions engaged in the design, production of automotive and aviation components, heavy engineering, and the manufacture of equipment and devices. In particular, these were institutions that worked for the Russian defense industry.
"A devastating attack against IPL Consulting was carried out by DIU specialists who penetrated the company's internal network and destroyed its entire IT infrastructure of more than 60 terabytes, dozens of servers and databases. The cost of the digital data array lost by Russia is being calculated," the DIU noted.
However, whatever the financial losses of the aggressor state as a result of the attack, they will be extremely painful for the enemy, military intelligence believes. After all, under sanctions pressure, it will be difficult for the Russians to repair the damage caused. And the consequences of the attack will be felt by dozens of Russian companies working for the Russian defense industry.
