Passion Group

The origins of the Passion group remain unknown, but they have made their presence known since the start of 2023. The group, affiliated with Killnet and Anonymous Russia, has been associated with defacement and denial-of-service attacks targeting individuals and organizations who do not support the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Passion has a strong online presence through its Telegram channels, some dating back to March 2022. Other hacktivist groups, such as Anonymous Russia, MIRAI, Venom, and Killnet, have promoted Passion.

The Passion group's tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) resemble those of the other hacktivist groups involved in the Russo-Ukrainian conflict. In 2023, Passion group began offering DDoS-as-a-service attacks to pro-Russian hacktivists. The Passion Botnet was leveraged during the attacks on January 27, targeting medical institutions in the USA, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Poland, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, and the United Kingdom as retaliation for sending tanks in support of Ukraine.
