In another tweet, it is possible that the group’s implementation of this daring hack is linked to an Anonymous fork called ‘The Anon Leaks‘. This group of hackers shared how they changed the details of a yacht by hacking into the “Marine Automatic Identification System, which is used to track ships.
The group’s twitter said it would aim to bring the yacht into “the scope of sanctions packages” and to lighten the mood during these dark times.
As reported by The Independent, the hacker group recently made a blog post in Germany. In the post, they say that Russian banks and services have also been hacked. However, they assert that these attacks alone “will not bring down the regime.” The hackers also emphasized that the attacks were not aimed at the Russian people or military, but only against the president and state-controlled agencies and companies, including the media.

The chargers were purchased through a Russian company that outsourced production to a Ukrainian parts supplier called AutoEnterprise, an EV charging company based in Kharkiv. This morning, posts started appearing on social media showing that the charger was disabled and programmed to display pro-Ukrainian messages.
The charger shows an error message reading in English “CALL SERVICE NO PLUGS AVAILABLE” before the new display shows an additional message in Russian: “GLORY TO UKRAINE/GLORY TO THE HEROES/PUTIN IS A DICKHEAD/DEATH TO THE ENEMY.” The phrase, which translates as “Putin is an asshole” became a popular slogan in post-war Ukraine of Russia 2014, especially among football fans in Kharkiv.
