Wednesday, the Russian government published a list of more than 17,500 IP addresses and 174 which were allegedly involved in ongoing distributed denial-of-service attacks on Russian infrastructure. The list was released by Russia’s National Coordination Center for Computer Incidents (NCCCI), includes the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) & Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)’s and other sites with top-level domains such as USA Today, 24News.ge, megatv.ge, and Ukraine’s Korrespondent magazine.
The Russian government didn’t publish any supporting evidence backing up its claim about the attacking IP addresses or domains on this list. DDoS incidents can be tough to attribute to any specific actor, and otherwise, benign internet domains can be hijacked by attackers to misdirect attention.
