Ukraine's state security service, the SBU, managed to deter the hacker attack on the embassy of a NATO member country. This is mentioned in the message posted on the website of the law enforcement agency.

'The information protection rules were broken; the breach was conducted by employees who worked for the enterprise of the Healthcare Ministry. The breach allowed them to get the unauthorized access to the communication systems of the enterprise. Then, the hackers tried to use the breach for cyber attacks on a foreign embassy', the message said.

Later, the Healthcare Ministry sacked the Director General of the mentioned enterprise. He is now also a suspect in the crime; the investigation is underway.
