REPORT: Ukraine Now Facing Sweeping Cyberattacks

Ukraine is under attack, just not a full-fledged military assault.

According to reports, several key institutions in Ukraine were under a denial of service (DDoS) attack.

Numerous government websites were down on Wednesday from the suspected Russian attack.

Here We Go

Ukraine’s government, foreign ministry, and state security service websites were all taken down on Wednesday from the cyberattacks.

Authorities also stated that they saw warning signs earlier in the week that there could be more institutions attacked, including the defense, banking, and government agency sectors.

Mykhailo Fedorov, Minister of Digital Transformation, stated, “At about 4 pm, another mass DDoS attack on our state began. We have relevant data from a number of banks.”

Ukraine is blaming Russia for the attacks, and Russia has already denied it was responsible.

This comes on the tail end of another cyberattack that took place last week.

NetBlocks director Alp Toker stated, “We’ve observed that the current network disruption has partial impact on the network layer to multiple defense and ministerial websites in Ukraine.

“The spread of outages is similar but distinct from the recent DDOS attack targeting defense and banking platforms, with the latter not impacted in this instance.”

While Putin has sent peacekeeping forces into Ukraine, the all-out invasion that everyone has anticipated has not yet occurred.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update as necessary.
