Ukrainian cyber watchdog agency: Ukrainian websites under nonstop attack

The State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection of Ukraine (SSSCIP) claimed that ‘Russian hackers keep on attacking Ukrainian information resources nonstop’. According to the agency, distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks launched since the beginning of Russia’s operation in Ukraine were primarily targeted at the information resources of Verkhovna Rada (the Ukrainian parliament), the cabinet, the presidency, the defence ministry, and the ministry of internal affairs. The SSSCIP also tweeted about the consequences of such attacks, noting that ‘The only thing the occupants managed to do was to substitute the front pages at the sites of some local authorities.’
