Ukrainian officials warn of new phishing attacks

In the wake of the war, Russia has decided that they would use a multi pronged offense, land, air and sea with a dose of cyber attack for good measure

But we can’t forget about other nations in this area that may decide that they’re going to do the same thing.

According to the first paragraph, it says:

Ukrainian officials warned Friday that Belarusian hackers are sending a wave of phishing emails targeting Ukrainian soldiers and civilians.

They posted on their facebook page about the issue and the article has a link to it.

Another paragraph says:

Once an account is compromised, hackers gain access to the target’s messages and their contact details, allowing them to send additional phishing emails
to their contacts, the CERT said.

This is nothing new, as we’ve gone through this before with other potential campaigns that even targeted other countries including the United States.

The campaigns follow the wave of denial of service attacks that hit the Ukraines prior, and is linked in this article for reference.

According to a portion of the very next paragraph, it states:

Officials are pinning the phishing campaign on a Minsk-based group of hackers referred to as “UNC1151,” which is believed by several security firms to be tied to the Belarusian government.

There have been defacements that were tied to this group last month, and that’s also linked.

According to the article, it is tied to prior phishing attacks that this group has done in the past.

Another paragraph states:

One of the phishing emails reads: “Dear user! Your contact information or not you are a spam bot. Please, click the link below and verify your contact
information. Otherwise, your account will be irretrievably deleted. Thank you for your understanding.” The emails are coming from the URLS “i[.]ua-passport[.]space”
and “id[.]bigmir[.]space,” UA-CERT warned.

We should be aware of this in case they decide to attack any other country which could include us here in the United States.

Don’t be mistaken, Russia has denied lots of things through the years. They’re not going to stop denying anything as long as the president continues to reign that country.

For complete details on this, please read the article Ukrainian cyber officials warn of new wave of phishing attacks and I hope that people at least understand what is happening.

Please be safe. If I find anything else worth posting, I’ll do so.
