The Agony of Russian Hackers

Russian hackers attack not only critical infrastructure and government agencies but also try to hack Ukrainian media

According to the State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine, this is done in order to publish fascist symbols or propaganda in the Ukrainian media.

During the full-scale war, hackers tried to hack the sites of publications using the vulnerability of the advertising application Redtram. They registered the user's account in the application and exploited the vulnerability to spread fakes in the Ukrainian media.

"This attack was not difficult. We reacted quickly and eliminated it. It did not damage the information infrastructure of the publications," said deputy chairman of the state special service Vyktor Zhora.

Ladies and gentlemen, let's remember the clumsy and ridiculous Russian-made deepfake in which Zelenskyy "capitulated" and "surrendered Ukraine". Thanks to Russian hackers: the whole of Ukraine laughs at the level of Russian professionalism. And laughter, as you know, prolongs life.
