Cyber​experts of the Security Service of Ukraine exposed the facts of purposeful dissemination of malicious software by the special services of the Russian Federation. The customers planned to damage the computer networks of public authorities, local self-government bodies, and critical infrastructure facilities.

In particular, at the beginning of June this year, bulk e-mails were sent with the sender’s address changed. Messages allegedly from the Kyiv Patrol Police Department contained malicious attachments and were sent to a number of government agencies.

Malicious software initiates the installation of frontend (remote administration tool) on a targeted computer, allowing a foreign intelligence service to remotely exercise full control over the PC. In turn, command-and-control servers are located in the territory of the Russian Federation.
