The Ukrainian Internet provider “Ukrtelekom” was subjected to a large-scale cyberattack. How reported The State Service of Special Communications and Information Protection of Ukraine, by the middle of the day on Monday, March 28, the attack was neutralized.

As the NetBlocks service shows, which displays Internet availability around the world, the attack affected users throughout Ukraine. According to the network, since the beginning of the special military operation, traffic in the country has decreased by 13%.

According to the notification of the state service of special communications, “Ukrtelekom” is now restoring its services. Nevertheless, “in order to protect the network infrastructure and further provide services to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other military formations and customers, Ukrtelekom temporarily restricted the provision of services to most private users and business customers.”

“Our main task today is to defeat the enemy on all fronts, including in cyberspace. Each of us can help in this fight by adhering to the following rules of cyber hygiene: do not open unknown messages, do not upload files of unverified origin and be critical of all incoming information,” the state special Communications service said.
