Cybersecurity firms are urging ordinary civilians to join the cyberwar, by means of an app that allows them to attack Russian websites spreading disinformation.
A link to the app – which is being promoted by cybersecurity firm disBalancer on Telegram – and instructions for how to download it were posted by Hacken, another cybersecurity outfit, on its Twitter page yesterday.
“We want to unite people fighting with Russian propaganda,” said a spokesperson for Hacken. “Our sister company disBalancer created a very easy-to-use app, so everyone can join the cyber army and help to turn off their lying websites. I believe that the whole cybersecurity community should know about this and spread the word.”
