Russian Hackers Hit Ukrainian Security Services

Digital technology plays an important, if not decisive, role in the Ukraine-Russia conflict. Cyberattacks increase as the conflict escalates.  And now a pro-Russian hacking group called Armageddon is a very active and dangerous threat to Ukraine during the current war with Russia.

The group, also known as Gamaredon, undertakes cyber espionage operations against Ukrainian security and defense services.

Right now, the group has is being linked to one destructive cyber attack against an 'information infrastructure facility' according to the Ukrainian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-UA). According to analysis from CERT-UA, the group has hit thousands of government computers.

Gamaredon operates from the Russian-annexed Ukrainian Crimean peninsula and acts on orders from Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) in Moscow, according to cyber security experts. The group has been consistently improving its tactics and rewriting its tools in order to evade detection, according to CERT-UA.

As the hackers get access, they work to steal files within a short timeframe often using the GammaSteel malware. This is a custom-made information stealer implant that can exfiltrate files of specific extensions, steal user credentials and take screenshots of the victim’s computer.

In response, Ukraine’s defence groups, which include numerous pro-Ukrainian hackers, are hitting Russia with cyber attacks aimed at government infrastructure.
