Exclusive: Russian hackers seek war crimes evidence, Ukraine cyber chief says

Russian hackers are targeting computer systems at law enforcement agencies in Ukraine in order to obtain evidence related to alleged Russian war crimes, according to Yurii Shchyhol, the head of Ukraine’s cyber defense. The hackers, who are affiliated with Russia’s intelligence agencies, have shifted their focus from energy facilities to law enforcement institutions. This change in direction indicates that the hackers are gathering evidence about Russian war crimes in Ukraine. The cyber attacks will be detailed in an upcoming report by Ukraine’s cyber defense agency. The report also reveals that the hackers are trying to gather intelligence on Russian nationals arrested in Ukraine to help them avoid prosecution. The Russian authorities have not yet responded to these allegations. The number of cybersecurity incidents in Ukraine has increased by 123% in the first half of this year compared to the second half of last year. Russian hackers have been prioritizing targeting government bodies and gaining access to their email servers. The International Criminal Court recently detected unusual activity on its computer network, but it is still unclear who was behind the hack. Ahead of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, Western intelligence agencies warned of potential cyberattacks. While there has been little evidence of spillover damage to global computer networks, Russia has regularly used cyber attacks alongside its military operations. In April 2022, a Russian intelligence hacking group attempted to launch a destructive cyberattack against Ukraine’s electricity grid, but the attack was thwarted. Russian hackers have also been accessing private security cameras in Ukraine to monitor the outcome of missile and drone strikes. Shchyhol expects that energy infrastructure in Ukraine will be targeted with cyber attacks again this winter. He emphasizes that the cyber war will continue even after Ukraine achieves victory on the battlefield.
