Hacking attempts against Burisma, the Ukrainian gas company on whose board Hunter Biden served, began in early November.
According to the experts, the timing and scale of the attacks suggest that the Russians could be searching for potentially embarrassing material on the Bidens.
It was also reported about the phishing attack on Kvartal 95, which appears to have been aimed at digging up email correspondence for the company’s chief, Ivan Bakanov, whom President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky appointed as the head of Ukraine’s Security Service last June.
The firm, which detected the hacking, stated that Russian hackers from a military intelligence unit known formerly as the G.R.U., and private researchers by the alias “Fancy Bear,” used so-called phishing emails that appear designed to steal usernames and passwords.
As we reported earlier, the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) stated that hackers were constantly attacking the banking system, and recently tried to hack into the site of the president of Ukraine.
According to the NSDC Secretary, Ukraine was forced to deal with eleven hacker attacks in a month.
