Russian Hackers Seeking To Compromise Ukrainian-Aligned Allies - Canadian Intelligence

(MENAFN- UkrinForm) Russia will try to use its hackers to compromise or disrupt Ukrainian-aligned allies.

That's according to Evan Koronewski, a spokesperson for Canada's Communications Security Establishment (CSE), Ukrinform reports, citing cbc news .

'[The agency] is aware of reporting regarding an increase in Russian state-aligned hacktivist groups seeking to compromise or disrupt Ukrainian-aligned allies, in response to their continued support of the government of Ukraine,' Koronewski said.

Koronewski said that, so far, CSE has not seen any spike in attacks against the government of Canada.

'The Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, part of the CSE, is reminding the Canadian cyber security community - especially critical infrastructure and defense industry network defenders - to adopt a heightened state of vigilance and to bolster their awareness of and protection against malicious cyber threats,' the spokesperson said.

The warning comes as Killnet, a group Canada and its allies list as a 'Russian-aligned cybercrime group,' vows to go after countries that support Ukraine.
