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.

Set your VPN to Russia, hide in plain sight
I imagine exchanges could be more at risk than usual too.. Might be a good time to get your assets out of them..
Cold Wallets. Specially with the market down.
Currently the Ukrainians are using crypto as their electronic payment systems have been halted
Attack on crypto would hurt both sides currently. And the US hasn’t even banned Russia from SWIFT.
Two can play that game. Biden can wreak havoc on Russia if he has the balls to do so.
Cyberwar sounds lovely. I’m also anticipating shots at internet access to be taken frequently.
Trudeau said he condemns Russias actions so that probably going to hurt Putin for quite some time I would imagine. You can bet he’s not having a good day today for sure
Can confrim the Russians are trying to hit these countries on a daily basis already and also before the war.
Russia has so many identified and monitored threat actors hitting big business , infrastructure etc etc.
They don’t aim at individuals, they take aim on a much larger scale.
I really think that they will point more critic sites than my computer. Downloading some movies right now with bittorrent and without VPN. I love danger.
Russia, China, Israel, the US, and every other major country is conducting loads of attacks every minute of the day. This is just one more thing for people to think is “new and scary”.
I’ll be purchasing an ssl certificate for my nodes. I could see those fuckers trying to nerf my services.
