ESET Research Podcast:
Ukraine’s past and present cyberwar

Long before the first Russian soldier set foot on Ukrainian soil, the country had been a target of sophisticated digital operations spying on its officials, and sabotaging its critical infrastructure and other sectors. It was even the ground zero for the most destructive cyberattack in history, known as NotPetya.

That trend continues during the current crisis. ESET researchers have uncovered an array of new, advanced cyberthreats infiltrating Ukrainian governmental organizations with a single goal – to cause as much damage as possible. Besides describing the tactics, techniques, and procedures of these threats, we provide context and explain when such attacks against Ukraine started, how they evolved over time, which of them could be considered successful, and what to expect in the future.
