Reports have suggested that pro-Russian hackers may be responsible for the recent cyber attacks in Canada, causing concern among government and security agencies. Several ports in Canada suffered multiple cyber attacks this week. The Ports of Halifax, Montreal, and Québec were targeted by a ‘denial-of-service attack’ which flooded their websites with traffic, causing them to crash. While it is unclear who was behind this particular attack, local news outlet Montreal Gazette reported that a pro-Russian group known as NoName057(16) claimed responsibility for another attack that occurred just two days after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with his Ukrainian counterpart, Denys Shmyhal, in Toronto. Trudeau reportedly used the meeting to announce a series of new military, economic, and cultural measures for Ukraine, including a donation of ammunition, assault rifles, and machine guns. The Canadian Prime Minister has also recently linked the recent cyberattacks to Russia or pro-Russian groups, indicating the seriousness of the situation. “Obviously, Canada’s unequivocally strong stance in support of Ukraine and against Russia’s illegal actions is bothersome to the Russian government and to pro-Russian hackers,” Trudeau said.
