Suspected Russian Cyber Hostilities Against Ukraine

APT

Ukrainian state institutions were hit by 6,500 cyber attacks in November and December 2016, in what could be Russian cyber hostilities against Ukraine. The affected institutions included Ukraine's finance and defence ministries and power grid. It is believed that a hacker group associated with the Russian government had installed malware on Android devices to track and target Ukrainian artillery units between 2014 and 2016. Russia has denied the accusations.
