Thus, military hackers from the United States “conducted a series of operations” in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“We have conducted a series of operations across the spectrum: offensive, defense, information operations,” said the American general.
He did not provide details of the operations, but said they were legal, under civilian oversight of the military and within the framework of US Department of Defense policy.
The head of the US cyber command also said that he was concerned about the daily risk of a Russian cyber attack aimed at his country. So forward hunts allow the United States to search for foreign hackers and identify their tools before they are used against America.
It will be recalled that on May 30, the international group of hackers Anonymous hacked a number of state websites in Belarus for involvement in Russia’s war in Ukraine.
