We will remind, on June 27 Ukraine struck by a massive hacker attack. About the virus Petya.A about 14 hours reported by banks, government and commercial enterprises.

All the virus had struck the computer system “Ukrenergo”, “Kyivenergo”, “Epicenter”, Kyivstar, Vodafone, Lifecell, ATR channel, “Ukrzaliznytsya”, Kiev metro, Sberbank, “New Mail”, the airport “Borispol”, a network of gas stations WOG, “Ukrgasdobycha” and others. Also “under attack” hit and the website of postal and telecommunications of Ukraine.

After a powerful attack by the virus-the extortioner Petya to Ukrainian enterprises, institutions and organizations on June 27, the NBU decided to create the cyber defence Centre.

On 1 July, the security Service of Ukraine has declared that it managed to establish the involvement of Russian secret services to attack the virus-the extortioner Petya.A. But in the “state Duma” such a statement is called a “fake.” The main purpose of large-scale cyberattacks virus Petya.A SBU called destabilizing the situation in Ukraine.
