A hacking team that Ukraine says is controlled by Russian intelligence targeted a “western government entity” currently in the country, based on new research published by Palo Alto Networks on Thursday.
The U.S. and other allies sent military advisers and cybersecurity experts to Ukraine in recent months to help defend against Russian forces.
The Palo Alto Networks (PANW.O) report does not name the targeted entity and a company representative declined to comment further.
Palo Alto Networks said it was able to track the Russian hacking mission by analyzing a maze of different malicious web domains designed to infect Ukrainian computers with malware.
