Last week, almost 20 DDoS attacks on state bodies were carried out in Ukraine: the vast majority of them were directed at the website of the President's Office. This was reported by the press service of State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine (SSSCIP).
It is reported that the system of cyber protection of state information resources and critical infrastructure facilities recorded 10,964 suspicious events at the monitoring facilities during May 6-12.
The vast majority of them concerned the detection of non-standard protocols or events (45%), network scan attempts (23%), network trojan detection (16%), and attempts to obtain administrator rights (10%).
The government's CERT-UA computer emergency response team registered and processed 3,207 cyber incidents during that period.
As we reported earlier, Russian military hackers tried to tap into the Ukrainian gas company which once employed Hunter Biden on its board.
According to the experts, the timing and scale of the attacks suggested that the Russians could be searching for potentially embarrassing material on the Bidens.
