Cyber attacks on government websites

On the night of January 14, a number of government websites, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education and Science etc., were attacked.

Provocative messages were posted on the main page of the websites. The content of the sites was not changed, and, according to preliminary information, no leakage of personal data occurred. The Diia App is fully operational.

To prevent the attack from spreading to other resources and to localize the technical problem, a number of other government websites have been suspended.

The SSU and the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection together with the relevant state authorities are investigating the attacks and collecting digital evidence.

Most of the affected state resources have already been restored, others will be operating soon.
