With the US, EU, Canada, and Australia delivering “unprecedented” levels of sanctions against Russia today, it is expected that cybersecurity attacks will greatly increase as the nation looks to make up for lost revenues in the coming months. Cryptocurrency is a natural target, especially because Russia is looking for alternate payment networks to circumvent USD.
Stay safe out there everyone (especially those in Ukraine, godspeed). Now is the perfect time to upgrade your security measures: update passwords, utilize 2FA, create that separate crypto-only email, whatever you have to do. Russia WILL get desperate, and we will need to be as vigilant as ever to weather the digital chaos to come.
In a related note, I am looking for a document created by a number of anonymous crypto devs sometime earlier this year outlining all the methods they use to maintain an anonymous digital identity. If someone has access to it, could you share it with me? I’d like to do some upgrading of my own.
