Since the beginning of the war in eastern Ukraine, the country has experienced a wave of cyber attacks. The hackers are mainly targeting important utilities like power suppliers, as well as public transport.
A Western intelligence source has told French newspaper Le Monde that Russian hackers APT28 were behind the breach. The OSCE has said that all systems are now safe.
After months of foreign hacking accusations, Russia has now said its own financial system was targeted by a cyber attack. The breach allegedly originated on servers based in the Netherlands.
Ukraine has accused the Russian security services of being behind the latest cyberattack that hit major firms starting in Ukraine and spreading globally. A Kremlin spokesman dismissed the claims as "unfounded."
The Dutch government, like its German and French counterparts, fears that Russia is trying to influence the upcoming election through hacking schemes and by spreading fake news. Thessa Lageman reports.
