Spillover risks could be increased due to Russian hacker said EU
The Council of European Union (EU) has recently organized an event which was specific to cyber security and increasing cyber security related risk in the region. In the same event the Council stated that Russian hacking groups are increasingly targeting “essential” organizations worldwide and this might result in spillover risks and potential escalation.
“This increase in malicious cyber security incidents, in the context of the war against Ukraine, creates unacceptable risks of spillover effects, misinterpretation and possible escalation,” EU spokesperson stated in context with increasing cyber-attacks. Further, the EU authorities informed Soviet County that United Nations member countries must ensure that the “UN’s Framework of responsible state behavior in cyberspace” is strictly being followed to ensure peace in the world.
EU also asked all the countries to take appropriate actions in order to stop malicious cyber activities conducted from their area.
It was recently observed that cases of distributed denial of services attacks (DDoS attacks) as well data exfiltration incidents are continuously increasing against European countries including France, Italy, United Kingdom(UK) Turkey, Germany, Spain, Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland. It was also noticed that the cyber attackers are believed to be from Russia and other countries supporting Russia.
World biggest search engine Google’s Threat Analysis Group (TAG) stated in March that it observed major phishing attacks composed by the Russian hacking group called as COLDRIVER against NATO and European military entities.
Few days back India has also faced major cyber-attacks by the hacker group from Malaysia and Indonesia due to a religious remark by Indian politician against the founder of Islam. The hacker group declared on Twitter and other social media websites that Indian government agencies as well as Indian university/colleges websites were attacked and compromised by so called threat actor DragonForce Malaysia.
