Ukrainian govt. warns lenders from cyber attacks risks

(MENAFN) According to the Ukrainian central bank, it warned state-owned and private lenders of the appearance of new malware as Ukraine faced cyber attacks like those that knocked out global systems in June.

Earlier in June, NotPetya took down many Ukrainian government agencies and businesses, before spreading rapidly through corporate networks.

Since then, Kiev's central bank was working with the government-backed Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) and police to boost the defenses of the Ukrainian banking sector by quickly sharing information.

The central bank said: "Therefore on Aug. 11..., the central bank promptly informed banks about the appearance of new malicious code, its features, compromise indicators and the need to implement precautionary measures to prevent infection."
