Estonia claims to have withstood cyberattacks from Russian-linked hackers

Estonia Claims To Have Withstood Cyberattacks From Russian-Linked Hackers

Comment

Estonia said it successfully resisted a major cyberattack launched by Russian-aligned hackers trying to take down the websites of government offices, banks and healthcare providers in the Baltic nation.

Wednesday’s attacks came as NATO member Estonia moved a Soviet-era World War II monument to a museum – an effort that has sparked controversy in a country with a large ethnic Russian population. But the incursions – distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, which involve hackers trying to flood websites with more users than they can handle – have failed. “With a few brief and minor exceptions, the websites remained fully available throughout the day,” said Luukas Ilves, Director of Government Information.

Estonia is one of the major software development centers in Europe. The Baltic republic of 1.3 million people – which regained its independence in 1991 after decades of rule from Moscow – is also one of Ukraine’s strongest supporters in the face of Russian invasion. Tallinn provided, per inhabitantmore military and humanitarian aid to Kyiv than to any other country.

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, dubbed Europe’s “Iron Lady” for her refusal to compromise with the Kremlin over Ukraine, is also a world leader in efforts to deepen Western sanctions against Moscow.

Killnet, a pro-Russian hacking group, claimed responsibility for the attacks on its Telegram channel. He said he tried to cut off access to hundreds of websites in sectors including finance, health, education, government services and utilities. In June, Killnet also sought to overwhelm Lithuanian public service websites after that country began enforcing EU sanctions against a Russian enclave. Lithuanian officials said a cyberattack compromised access to more than 130 websites in late June.

Robert Potter, co-founder and managing director of Internet 2.0, an Australian cybersecurity company, said this week’s attack on Estonia was a high-intensity, short-term campaign, and that these efforts are ” generally less sophisticated”.

“Opponents are trading precision for scale. Therefore, it is best to interpret these attacks as messages rather than campaigns designed to destroy,” he said.

In 2007, Estonia suffered a massive cyberattack by hackers suspected of having ties to the Kremlin. Hackers crippled mail servers and forced a major bank to shut down online services for more than an hour. Many Estonian websites were forced to temporarily cut themselves off from the rest of the world, in what was the first known instance of a major nation-to-nation cyberattack. These attacks also took place after Estonia moved a Soviet-era World War II monument. Moscow has denied any involvement.

Estonian leader calls for faster help for Ukraine amid signs of war fatigue

The 2007 attacks prompted the small Baltic country to improve its cybersecurity infrastructure, making it better prepared for this latest strike. It has a voluntary civilian cyber defense league and hosts an annual NATO-led cybersecurity training operation, the largest such exercise in the world. Microsoft also ranks Estonia high in its Digital Futures Index, which measures factors such as e-governance capabilities and digital infrastructure sophistication.

“Although subject to the most widespread cyberattacks, [Estonia] is stronger than we were in 2007″, Kallas wrote on Twitter on Thursday.

This week, Estonia removed a World War II Soviet T-34 tank from a monument near the Russian border. Officials said modern Russian tanks were now being used to kill innocent people in Ukraine.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has “ripped the wounds in our society that these communist monuments remind us of,” Kallas said recently.

Indian Higher Education Startup Sunstone Raises $35 Million – Techcrunch

Sunstone, a higher education startup that works with academic institutions to help their students improve their skills for employability, has raised $35 million in a new funding round as it seeks to spread to other Indian cities.

Sunstone’s founders said Friday that WestBridge Capital led the startup’s Series C funding round. Alteria Capital also participated in the funding, which brings its round to date to approximately $68 million.

There are thousands of colleges and management institutions in India, but apart from those that top the rankings, most are unable to attract enough students. Their programs are also generally outdated and they struggle to get their students to get jobs.

Founded in 2019, Sunstone addresses these challenges by offering students a wide range of additional courses and helping them find jobs, co-founder Piyush Nangru told TechCrunch in an interview.

“Colleges operate at 40% occupancy. This amounts to a perishable inventory for them, due to which they are unable to amass resources and hence the quality of education suffers,” he said. “We partner with these institutions to provide soft skills and development courses as well as campus life programs for students to improve the quality of their education.”

Through these partnerships, the institutes continue to offer hundreds of hours of “core” courses to students. “Take the MBA, for example. It is a 900 hour program, which covers key topics like accounting, marketing and finance. The curriculum is outdated, so we are integrating our own 600-hour modules – half of which are soft skills focussed and the rest industry ready skills – on top of that,” he explained.

Part of the value proposition of the New Delhi-based startup, which currently services undergraduate and postgraduate students at more than 40 institutions in nearly three dozen Indian cities, is bringing parity in the quality of education and employment opportunities in all establishments with which it is a partner.

“India’s higher education system is on the brink of a long overdue transformation,” said Ashish Munjal, co-founder and chief executive of Sunstone. “Sunstone is well positioned to enable this change and impact the lives of millions of students. Over the years, we have made significant progress in this direction, but we still have a long way to go, because the market opportunities and the problems that we are trying to solve are very important. »

Sunstone, which says it has grown 10-fold over the past two years, is currently focusing on business schools. It is also beginning to expand into engineering and other tech sectors and that expansion is part of how it plans to roll out the new funds, the founders said.

“Over the past year, we have seen Sunstone grow and continue to improve the quality of education provided to every student. Seeing the ever-increasing demand and its potential to be a major disruptor, we are delighted to double our investment to support its mission to transform the higher education sector in India,” said Sandeep Singhal, Managing Partner, WestBridge Capital , in a press release.

After Gyimah chased the suspects down the street, graphic images released by the NYPD show four of the suspects surrounding the taxi driver, punching and kicking the victim while she was on the ground.

Three of the suspects were seen leaving Gyimah as he got back to his feet, but one suspect then approached the taxi driver and knocked the victim unconscious with a punch to the head.

When authorities arrived, the victim was lying on the sidewalk with a traumatic brain injury to the back of his head, police said.

Gyimah was rushed to Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Queens by EMS, but was later pronounced dead.

Two 20-year-old male suspects from Queens were arrested and charged Thursday, authorities say. Both Austin Amos and Nikolas Porters face charges of gang assault and theft of services, while Amos faces additional charges of manslaughter and assault.

Amos, who turned himself in Wednesday night, has previous arrests for “theft, criminal mischief, criminal contempt and sexual misconduct,” according to the Daily mail.

Police are still looking for three other wanted suspects – all believed to be teenage girls – in connection with the victim’s death.

Gyimah’s death devastated his family and the Ghanaian community in New York.

“I don’t know what to do now. I lost. I lost,” Gyimah’s wife, Abigail Barwuah, told CBS New York. “He was a good, good man. He was my backbone. I’m lost right now. My kids’ hero.

Gyimah, described as a devout Christian, leaves behind a wife and four children, aged three to eight.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the taxi driver’s family, who received over $150,000 on Thursday night.

The New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to the suspects’ arrest.

Overall, crime in Democratic-run New York City was up 38.6% from the same time last year, although murders were down 8.1%.

Rising crime has Big Apple residents worried about their safety, as a recent poll found that 76% fear becoming a victim of violent crime.
