30 times more DDoS attacks on Russian companies are expected this year than last year. This opinion was expressed by experts of the international company StormWall, which develops and provides information security services, writes Gazeta.ru.

“This year we are witnessing a real cyber war, and its scale will only increase,” StormWall noted.
Experts said that hundreds of Internet hacktivists coordinated by through groups in Telegram. There they are taught how to launch DDoS attacks, and also provide targets for them.
Experts also concluded that the average duration of an attack will increase significantly. If at the beginning of 2022 they lasted about seven hours, now they are already several days or more.
