SBU neutralizes hacker group in Kharkiv region
The Security Service of Ukraine together with the Police and under procedural supervision of the Prosecutor’s Office stopped the illegal activity of a hacker group in Kharkiv region.
For two years three Kharkiv residents had been interfering into the work of automated systems and computer networks by committing DDOS attacks “on a by-order basis”. The criminals created malicious programs to attack computers and get full and concealed control. After that, the controlled computers were incorporated into Bot-Net-network and used to commit hacker attacks.
The criminals were notified of suspicion under Article 361 and 361-1 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine.
Now the law enforcers identify the criminals who used the services of the hackers.
