While the majority of cyberattacks in Ukraine are planned and highly targeted, there are signs that things are set to change.

A new Trojan dubbed “FoxBlade” was discovered by Microsoft researchers on Ukrainian government systems that would allow attackers to use infected PCs in DDoS attacks.

Experts are concerned that malware operators will try to infect as many systems as possible with it, inside and outside of Ukraine, to make the attacks more powerful.

There has also been a sharp increase in phishing attacks originating in Russia in the past 24 hours, already hitting several organisations in Europe and the US.
