Russia’s Sberbank repels largest cyber attack in its history

Russia’s Sberbank repels largest cyber attack in its history

Moscow, Oct 26 (Prensa Latina) Sberbank, the most important bank in Russia, repelled one of the biggest cyber attacks in its history, which lasted 24 hours and seven minutes, the institution's vice-president, Stanislav Kuznetsov, informed.

The DDoS attack, which is a denial-of-service attack, involved at least 104,000 hackers with at least 30,000 computers located in different countries, Kuznetsov told Rossiya 24 television channel on Tuesday.

The senior executive stressed that the bank activated its advanced security protocols and continued to operate without interruptions, although working in such conditions was very complicated.

‘Our team found the necessary resources to stop the cyberattack successfully,’ the banking executive explained.

So far this year, Kuznetsov added, Sberbank has faced at least 470 cyberattacks on its systems, which exceeds all those detected in the last seven years.
