Russian hackers attack: JP Morgan, Nasdaq, Carrefour and millions of passwords. The Russian authorities suspect that they have been working jointly since DDoS-attacks on Estonia in 2007.

In the spring of that year the country’s authorities decided to move the monument to Soviet soldiers from the centre of Tallinn, and later broke up rallies attended by the Russian-speaking residents of the country. Immediately after the break-up a massive DDoS-attack on the websites of banks and other organizations in Estonia began. 

The Estonian Defense Minister Jaak Aaviksoo complained that the country was attacked from computers in Russia, including the Russian government agencies, and demanded to investigate the involvement of the Russian authorities in the attacks. The story did not go any further than accusations. But now the FBI is investigating whether the hacking of the computers of the bank JP Morgan Chase is a revenge of Russians for American sanctions connected with Ukraine.
