Ukrtelecom

Ukrtelecom, Ukraine’s largest fixed-line telecommunications firm, has been targeted by a “powerful” cyberattack. It is considered to be the most lethal cyberattack since the Russian invasion began in February, and it has brought the company’s services across the country to a halt.

Ukrtelecom CEO Yuriy Kurmaz said in a statement that a powerful hostile cyber attack was launched against the organization’s IT infrastructure.

Ukrtelecom, Ukraine’s largest fixed-line telecommunications firm, has been targeted by a “powerful” cyberattack. It is considered to be the most lethal cyberattack since the Russian invasion began in February, and it has brought the company’s services across the country to a halt.

Ukrtelecom CEO Yuriy Kurmaz said in a statement that a powerful hostile cyber attack was launched against the organization’s IT infrastructure.

State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine stated: “In order to preserve its network infrastructure and to continue providing services to Ukraine’s Armed Forces and other military formations as well as to the customers, Ukrtelecom has temporarily limited providing its services to the majority of private users and business-clients”.

Mr. Kurmaz stated that the attack had been successfully repelled and that services were progressively being restored.

Before the publication of the incident’s details, Alp Toker, director of Netblocks, told the BBC they had observed users, “falling offline progressively over the course of the day, which indicates that the issue lies not with cabling or interconnections, but rather with central infrastructure at the operator’s data center. This can indicate a cyber-attack”.
