The websites of the Danish Central Bank and 7 other private banks were attacked earlier this week, according to what was revealed by representatives of those banks.
In addition to the Danish central bank, the cyber attacks targeted Jyske Bank, Sparekassen, Sjælland-Fyn, Skjern Bank, Ringkjobing Landbobank, Djurslands Bank and Creditbanken.
Jyske Bank said in a statement on Wednesday that it had been subjected to an attack aimed at “reducing electronic operations”.
He expressed doubts that the attack “originated from Russia,” saying they were monitoring the situation closely as they gathered more information.

For its part, Danske Bank indicated, in statements reported by the Anatolia correspondent, that it was also subjected to a cyber attack on January 10.
In the context, Lance McGrath, head of the bank’s security sector, said that the Kelent Group claimed responsibility for the attack.
Kelnet is a loosely-knit group of volunteer hackers that has launched a series of attacks against various organizations in Ukraine and the countries on its side since Russia launched its military operation in February 2022.
