Unlike other wars in the past, this one between Russia and Ukraine also takes place online. In addition to cross-country cyberattacks, fakenews have also been widely used and other services have also appeared.
The platform that we make known today is called WasteRussianTime.today, and as the name suggests it serves to annoy… in this case Russian officials.
Hackers say user data is not recorded
A group of hackers recently created a website that allows calls to be made between Russian officials. The aim is to distract officers from their duties in the Ukrainian war. The project was created by the group Ofuscated Dreams of Scheherazade.
THE WasteRussianTime.today service puts in communication random Russian officials, government figures, military and also Russian intelligence resources.
The hacker group says that the service has registered more than 5,000 numbers and that the operation of users using this platform is not recorded.
The Obfuscated Dreams of Scheherazade describes these actions as a "civilian intervention", pointing out that "if officers are inundated with phone calls, they cannot drop bombs, coordinate soldiers and plan invasions".
The invasion of Ukraine prompted hackers from around the world to help Russia, with groups such as Anonymous carrying out cyberattacks against Kremlin-affiliated websites.
Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24 and the military offensive has already killed more than 3,000 civilians, according to the UN, which warns that the real number is likely to be much higher. The military offensive has caused more than 13 million people to flee, of which more than 5.5 million have left the country, according to the latest UN figures.
The Russian invasion was condemned by the international community in general, which responded by sending weapons to Ukraine and reinforcing economic and political sanctions on Moscow.
