Ignitis Group, a leading energy company in the Baltic states, was targeted by a series of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks claimed by the pro-Russian hacking group Killnet. The attacks, described as the largest in a decade, aimed to disrupt its digital services and websites amidst tensions due to Lithuania's support for Ukraine. Despite the concerted efforts, Ignitis Group managed to limit the impacts, recording no breaches of their systems. The attacks continued, highlighting the vulnerability of regional infrastructure to politically motivated cyber aggression. The incident underscores the growing threat to energy providers and the need for enhanced cybersecurity measures to protect critical infrastructure from disruption.
