Russian Cyberwar targeted 42 countries that support Ukraine

Russian war with Ukraine seems to be never ending and news is now out that state sponsored threat actors have targeted about 42 countries and 128 government agencies so far that were supporting Kyiv with essentials, ammunition and finances.

United States along with the UK are urging Zelensky to conduct a dialog with Putin for peace, as they seem to be vexed with the threatening demands of the Volodymyr Zelenskyy to support his nation with $1 billion funding all throughout this year, at any cost.

Coming back to the content related to this news, EU Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) has revealed that governments that are supporting Ukraine in the war with Moscow were facing many cyber-attacks from state sponsored actors including zero day and vulnerability exploits, attacks on Operational technology through malware, data wiper attacks and disruption of networks of federal governments through Denial-of-service attacks.

Threats are emerging via social engineering attacks, to spread disinformation and create geo-political differences.

Almost all countries from Asia, Japan, Australia, Taiwan, are being targeted by state sponsored actors says a special study made by ENISA.

Concerningly, no victimized country can take action against Vladimir Putin and his allies, as doing so might trigger a nuclear war anytime that can lead to a doomsday.

NOTE- War between Ukraine and Russia turned gruesome at the end of a last week. Some parts of Kyiv were pushed into extreme darkness, with Kremlin launching a missile attack on energy infrastructure and supply chain. Innocent citizens were seen suffering as they have to brace the harsh winter with no help from electronic heating appliances and they are in a dilemma on when this misery is going to end. As leaders of both sides are putting their egos forward, instead of solving the crisis met by their populace, respectively. FYI, the prices of essential supplies have quadrupled for the populace of Russian federation as well- all because of the economic sanctions put forward by the west.
