Ukrainian hackers have disrupted the operation of one of the largest ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems, 1C-Rarus, according to the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.

"A major ERP system in Russia has ceased operations due to attacks by the Ukrainian IT Army," the statement says.

As noted by the Ministry of Digital Transformation, clients cannot use accounting services and operate at total capacity. It's worth mentioning that 1C-Rarus has 150,000 users, including technological giants and sponsors of the war such as Tatneft and VTB.

Also, due to the non-functioning cash registers, customers cannot pay at gas stations and stores. The system's disruption is causing significant financial losses for the Russian economy.

"All thanks to our cyber warriors. Want the same? It's easy! Anyone can join the IT Army and use a computer to inflict pain on Russian corporations and businesses," stated the Ministry of Digital Transformation.

1C-Rarus Program

1C-Rarus automates accounting, managerial, and tax accounting. It is used for automating accounting in Moscow and throughout Russia.

With its help, accounting tasks such as reflecting the movement of goods and money, settlements with personnel and clients, and creating tax declarations can be automated.

Cyber attacks on Russian sites

Since the beginning of the full-scale war, Ukrainian IT specialists have been attacking the websites of major Russian banks and government institutions. The websites of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Roskomnadzor, and Rosaviatsia were disrupted. Large state-owned (propagandist) media outlets also ceased operations due to hacker attacks.

Recently, the Ukrainian IT army halted the operation of major airports in Russia. Propagandist media claimed it was a DDoS attack.
