NoName057(16) on its Telegram channel claimed attacks Sydbank, Sparekassen Sjaelland-Fyn, Bankinvest, Jyskebank.

Reuters reported hackers also hit Bankdata, a private company that provides financial technology. The hackers also targeted Denmark’s National Bank, which regained its access after the attack took its website for a brief period, Reuters reported.

NoName057(16), along with KillNet, is among a handful of cybercrime groups launching DDoS attacks in putative support of the Russian government as it continues its invasion of Ukraine.

NoName057(16) coordinates with a number of sub-groups to carry out attacks on its target. One among these groups is DDosia through which NoName provides instructions on how to use a custom tool available on GitHub under the same name. In September 2022, NoName057(16) established a financial reward for top-ranked members who successfully conduct DDoS attacks receive a financial reward.
