CISA Releases Alert on Potential Russian Cyber Threats to Critical Infrastructure
Monday, April 25, 2022 | Comments

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released an alert about potential cyber threats from Russian state sponsored entities to U.S. critical infrastructure.

“Evolving intelligence indicates that the Russian government is exploring options for potential cyberattacks,” the alert said. “Recent Russian state-sponsored cyber operations have included distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, and older operations have included deployment of destructive malware against Ukrainian government and critical infrastructure organizations.”

CISA also said that some cybercrime groups have publicly pledged support for the Russian government and have threatened to conduct cyber operations in retaliation for perceived cyber offensives against the Russian government and its people.

“Some groups have also threatened to conduct cyber operations against countries and organizations providing materiel support to Ukraine,” the alert said. “Other cybercrime groups have recently conducted disruptive attacks against Ukrainian websites, likely in support of the Russian military offensive.”
