Ukraine charges Russia with new cyber attacks on infrastructure

By Natalia Zinets KIEV (Reuters) – Ukraine on Wednesday accused Russian hackers of targeting its power grid, financial system and other infrastructure with a new type of virus that attacks industrial processes, the latest in a series of cyber offensives against the country. Oleksandr Tkachuk, Ukraine’s security service chief of staff, said at a press conference that the attacks were orchestrated by the Russian security service with help from private software firms and criminal hackers, and looked like they were designed by the same people who created malware known as “BlackEnergy.” Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) could not be reached for comment.
