SSU exposes another bot farm in Kharkiv (video)
The farm exclusively targeted our military and law enforcement officers through sending SMS with proposals to surrender and defect to the occupiers.
In this way, Russian special services tried to conduct a special information operation and destabilize moral and psychological state of Ukrainian security forces.
‘The outcome of events is predetermined! Be prudent and refuse to support nationalism and leaders of the country who discredited themselves and already fled the capital!!!’ the false SMS said.
The bot farm was quite quickly discovered and neutralized by the SSU cyber specialists. The enemy managed to send about 5,000 messages through this channel.
It is interesting that all the equipment was located in Dnipropetrovsk region and was remotely controlled from Russia.
The owner of the apartment admits that he had no idea he had a role in the enemy’s ‘special operation’.
