About the next virus encryption reports Ukrainian cyber police


It is reported that over the past day - the first day of the activity of the Scarab virus - the cyberpolice management has not received a single application from citizens about virus infection of their computers. Apparently, before this, statements were received and the Ukrainian police had to react to them in some way.

Recall that earlier for wide spread run viruses Petya and BadRabbit. The latter was aimed at large banks and media sites. These viruses have also been active in the Russian Federation, Germany, Poland and other countries in Europe and the world.

At the moment there are no reports of damage, which in the first days of its activities caused the next virus encryption.

    I understand that this is “their report on the work done?” The virus was muddied, but he did not “obey” the creators lol and began to climb wherever he could reach? And the name in honor of the dung beetle "Skarobe", it is the sacred beetle of ancient Egypt! !!

    A little off topic: "The Ukrainian army was planning a large-scale offensive operation in Donbass, but it was frustrated due to the excessive talkativeness of a voluntary assistant." This was stated at the headquarters of the 54th brigade of the Armed Forces, reports Ukrainian channel TSN. hi

    It is strange that there is no instant accusation of Russia for a cyber attack on Ukraine, and this is now in a big trend. And viruses are viruses and so that they can spread and infect. Less need to be run with their playful little hands on the clave creating them (NSA example).

        Greetings hi So this is strange. Usually, Ukrainians do not wait for pointers about the accusations of Russia, but rather in a hurry to please the owner.
