Earlier on Friday, NSPK Information Security Officer Artem Gutnik said the number of cyberattacks on the NSPK had not increased two or three times but much more since February. He noted that hackers operate tirelessly, adding that the Russian banking sector is reliable and information security in Russia is probably one of the best in the world. According to the report, Ukrainian hackers launched DDoS attacks on the system amid news that some Russia-friendly countries may refuse to work with the Mir payment system. Cybersecurity sources confirmed the attack to Kommersant, while the Bank of Russia and the NSPK declined to comment on the matter. Media quoted the sources as saying hackers are generating traffic using browsers or primitive DDoS tools to disrupt payment processing and terminal operation. On September 15, the US Treasury said sanctions would be applied against financial institutions supporting the Mir payment network outside of Russia. On Monday, Turkish banks Ishbank and Denizbank confirmed to Sputnik that they had stopped serving Mir bank cards over US and UK sanctions against Russia. On Friday, Uzbek national banking service Uzcard suspended card processing from Russia’s Mir payment system, citing technical issues, after the United States threatened secondary sanctions. At the same time, co-branded Mir cards continue to work in standard mode on the territory of Uzbekistan, the service said.
