The SBU operatives with partners from the United States stopped the activities of a powerful hacker group. This was reported by the. Head of the Security Service of Ukraine Ivan Bakanov.

Since 2007, hackers have provided virtual services to criminals, creating conditions for them to freely carry out illegal activities. The attackers used Dark Net - a part of the Internet that was hidden from ordinary users, where it is possible to anonymously purchase weapons, drugs and the like. Law enforcement officers could not identify the participants, because hosting did not respond to requests.

Intelligence officers have established that the organizer of the group is a citizen of Ukraine, who received his first hacker experience in Moscow in the mid-2000s. Already in 2007, he began to provide his services to hackers around the world through Ukrainian networks, carefully concealing the actual location of his equipment from law enforcement officers and special services of any country. The equipment was periodically found by Ukrainian, Russian, and American law enforcement officers, confiscated it, temporarily ceased operations, but the hacker group continued to operate.

The group has about ten main participants and dozens of accomplices in several countries, as well as thousands of customers. They are concerned that hundreds of terabytes of data are in the hands of the special services, which can be evidence in hundreds of criminal cases around the world. According to our estimates, we can talk about 40% of the Russian-language segment of Dark Net, ”said the acting minister. head of the SBU.

In the United States alone, an average of fifty years in prison was brought against the organizer. He is accused of fraud, unauthorized interference, theft of personal data and a number of other crimes under US criminal law. In Ukraine, the organizer and another member of the group declared suspicion of committing criminal offenses under Part 2 of Art. 361 and Part 3 of Art. 301 of the Criminal Code. They are under house arrest.

During the authorized investigative actions on the territory of a private house near Odessa, we found a real data center with a backup autonomous power source, security, powerful Internet access channels, which was carefully hidden.

A preliminary study of network equipment and an assessment of the ranges of IP addresses used by the grouping indicates at least three autonomous systems reserved for enterprises of the Russian Federation. Given the counter-intelligence regime that exists in the Russian Federation, as well as the technological features of the organization and construction of SORM-3, possession and control of this numbering resource by the group could not take place without control and cover of Russian special services. This information allows the SBU to get a clearer picture of the cyber attacks on Ukrainian critical infrastructure facilities, and the role of the Russian special services in cyber attacks on other countries.
