The Russia-associated hacking group NoName targeted several government websites in Switzerland. The reason cited for the attack was the participation of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in the World Economic Forum in Davos.

This information was reported by the press service of the Swiss government.

According to the agency, as a result of the DDoS attack, access to several websites, including those of the Federal Administration, was temporarily disrupted. The Swiss government portal www.admin.ch continues to operate.

"Responsibility for the attack has once again been claimed by the hacker group ‘NoName’, which previously targeted the Federal Administration in June 2023. The presumed pro-Russian group cited Ukrainian President Zelenskyy’s attendance at the WEF Annual Meeting in Davos as the reason for the DDoS attack," clarified the government.

The department added that similar hacker attacks were expected in anticipation of the visit of leaders from various countries to the World Economic Forum in Davos.
