Ukraine has shown a remarkable ability of crandom and block Russian attacks on their networks, US and allied officials say.
While the U.S. government and tech companies helped stop some of these attacks, officials say Ukrainian internet defenders, trained by Great Britain and the United StatesThey deserve much of the credit.
The joint release of information served as a demonstration of continued cooperation between US officials and the Ukrainian National Intelligence Agency, despite the fact that the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky recently fired his intelligence chief, Ivan Bakanov.
Zelensky said Bakanov wasn’t aggressive enough to do it eliminate the traitors and cited hundreds of treason investigations of Ukrainian law enforcement officers.
US officials said they believe they still have it safe ways to collaborate with trusted members of the Ukrainian intelligence services and that firing Bakanov would not affect intelligence sharing.
By making the new forms of Russian malware public, the US Cyber Command said, it hopes US companies will be able to strengthen your defenses against potential cyber attacks.
“These indicators of compromise have been shared with us by our Ukrainian partners to enable the industry to take action and evaluate their networks,” said Mag. Katrina Cheesman, spokesperson for the Cyber National Mission Force, a wing of Cyber Command dedicated to thwart hackers.
Since the start of the war in February, Russia has stepped up its efforts for use intrusions on computer networks to gather information around the world, according to Microsoft.
However, Moscow has largely refrained from mounting major cyber attacks on critical infrastructure belonging to the United States and its allies.
US officials say the threat of a Russian cyber attack remains serious, but so far Moscow appears to have been deterred from attacking the United States.
