Ukraine’s security service, the SBU, announced that it has identified and detained an alleged member of the pro-Russia hacker group known as the Cyber Army of Russia. The news was first reported by The Record Media. The hacktivists group is known for having launched DDoS attacks against Western organizations and Ukrainian government agencies. However, Ukrainian intelligence speculates that the group’s operations are directly controlled by the Kremlin.
The SBU revealed that the man was living in the city of Kharkiv (Ukraine) and was recruited by Russian intelligence via Telegram.
