Hackers from Russia are infecting Ukrainian companies with malicious software to create “back doors” for a large, coordinated attack

Hackers from Russia are infecting Ukrainian companies with malicious software to create “back doors” for a large, coordinated attack, Ukraine’s cyber police chief tells Reuters. The hackers target companies, banks and energy firms in a roll out that suggests they plan to activate the malware in one massive strike, cyber police chief Serhiy Demedyuk said. The day could be a national holiday, such as today, Constitution Day, or, Independence Day, August 24. He told Reuters: “99 percent of the traces come from Russia.” One year after the NotPetya attack, he said some Ukrainian companies have not cleaned their computer and are still infected by that virus and vulnerable to being used for another attack. He said: “We are sounding the alarm to remind people – come to your senses, check your equipment.”
