The Killnet Group hacked the Italian Cyber Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT), the cyber security arm of Italy’s law enforcement. 

The Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) of Italy has issued a warning to public and private sector organizations about the increased danger of cyber assaults. The CSIRT Italy traced the 11-21 May 2022 cyber strikes against Italian organizations to the hackers in the issue. 

According to the information presented, the pro-Russian Killnet gang may be the hackers suspected to be targeting the nation. CSIRT Italy has provided recommendations to any organizations susceptible to cyber assaults from Killnet. The organization is notorious for making misleading claims regarding its alleged achievements. Most recently, it claimed to have obtained an authentic duplicate of Jens Stoltenberg’s passport, the secretary-general of NATO.
