Ukraine To Scrutinize Cyber Defenses Following Attack On Airport Linked To Russia

A cyber attack on Kiev’s main airport, Boryspil, has prompted a review of Ukrainian computer system defenses, including airports and railway stations, according to Reuters. Officials told Reuters the attack came from a server in Russia.

Officials detected malware last week in a computer in the airport’s IT network. The malware is similar to that which attacked three power utilities in late December.
