Killnet, Kaliningrad, and Lithuania's Transport Standoff With Russia

Russian cyber collective Killnet has taken responsibility for today's DDoS attacks on the Lithuanian government and private institutions. On its Telegram channel, the group claimed that it would stop the attacks as soon as the Lithuanian government reinstates transit routes with the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad.

The Lithuanian National Cyber Security Center told Reuters in a statement that it expects "attacks of a similar or greater intensity in the coming days especially in the transportation, energy and financial sectors."

"The attack will continue until Lithuania lifts the blockade," a spokesperson for the Killnet group told Reuters. "We have demolished 1652 web resources. And that's just so far."
Killnet and Russia

At the start of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, the cyber collective Killnet declared their allegiance to the Russian government in the war. Killnet has been continuously posting alleged evidence of their DDoS attacks on Lithuanian entities onto their Telegram account, "WE ARE KILLNET," which features attacks on infrastructure targets, such as airports, various prominent businesses, and government websites, including those belonging to Lithuania's police departments, and its defense ministry.

This development once again highlights the importance of Telegram as a communication channel for threat actors; Killnet uses its Telegram group not only to recruit new members but also to coordinate its attacks in real time.

Denial-of-service attacks which, apparently, have only succeeded in slowing down some government websites. I would expect Lithuanian sites to be pretty well secured, and that seems to be the case.
