Stefan Soesanto on Ukrainian hack and leak ops; cyberattack in Georgia

When Russia invaded Ukraine in February of 2022, it was immediately apparent that the conflict would in part be waged in cyberspace. As Russian tanks rolled into Ukraine, Russian forces also launched a cyberattack against satellite modems that impacted the Ukrainian military’s ability to communicate. Since then, Russian cyberattacks have been a regular feature of the conflict — but on the other side, Ukrainian hackers are also going after Russian targets and are frequently leaking stolen documents online. On today’s episode of Safe Mode, Stefan Soesanto, a senior researcher at the Center for Security Studies at ETH Zurich, sits down with host Elias Groll to discuss his research on how Ukrainian hacking groups are operating in the war. CyberScoop reporter Derek B. Johnson also joins the show to discuss a cyberattack on a Georgia county that prompted state officials to cut the county off from statewide election infrastructure.
