Ukraine neutralises massive cyber attack that paused Internet
Kiev, March 29 (IANS) Ukraine has neutralised a massive cyber-attack on core IT infrastructure that impacted the entire nation.
According to global Internet access tracker NetBlocks, the nation's online connectivity collapsed to 13 per cent, leading to the most severe Internet disruption registered in Ukraine since the invasion by Russia.
The Ukrainian Internet Service Provider Ukrtelecom was the target of a "massive cyberattack," the government said late on Monday.
According to the State Service of Special Communication and Information Protection (SSSCIP) of Ukraine, the cyber-attack had been neutralised.
"The first cyberwar in human history is under way," said SSSCIP Chairman Yurii Shchyhol.
The "entire IT-community of the world" is united against Russia's invasion, he added.
