Jens Stoltenberg confirms cyberattack on NATO sites, but denies leak

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed information about cyber attacks on the organization’s websites last Sunday. Mr. Stoltenberg assured that as a result of the attack, classified information was not leaked to the network.

“On Sunday we experienced a serious attack on our resources. Most of our sites are already available, but some are still under construction. But I can assure you that our classified information has not been touched and there are no consequences for NATO missions and operations,” said Jens Stoltenberg at a press conference in Brussels (quoted from TASS).

On the night of February 13, a NATO spokesman told DPA that cybersecurity experts were looking into cyberattacks against the alliance’s websites. According to him, hackers also attacked the website of the headquarters of the NATO Special Operations Forces and other resources that were unavailable for some time.

Against this background, messages were circulating on Twitter about the involvement of “pro-Russian activists”, including those from the Killnet group, in cyberattacks. Today, February 13, the hacker group Killnet announced the hacking of the website of the Ramstein military base.
