Along with the offensive on the battlefield, the Russian occupiers are continuously attacking in cyberspace. During the six months of the war, the Government Computer Emergency Response Team of Ukraine CERT-UA, which operates under the State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine, registered 1,123 cyberattacks. This was reported by the State Intelligence Service.
Most often, cybercriminals attacked the Government and local authorities. Also among the main targets are commercial and financial institutions, bodies of the security and defense sector, enterprises of the energy sector, transport industry and telecom – all infrastructure that works for the livelihood of the population.
Among the most common methods of cyberattacks are the collection of information by an attacker, malicious software code, and tampering.
MediaSapiens previously reported that Russia had carried out almost 800 cyberattacks against Ukraine during the four months of the war. Compared to the same period last year, the number of cyber attacks increased three times.
