A Qualitative and Analytical Perspective on the Cyber War Between Russia and Ukraine - An Analysis
This analysis aims to offer an in-depth perspective from both qualitative and in-depth technical perspective on the currently ongoing cyberwar between Russia and Ukraine
The current and ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine is prone to escalate into cyberspace just like the way it recently did in the context of having both parties actively engage in various DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks using off-the-shelf and proprietary tools including such as for instance build in iFrame HTTP get flooders which basically anyone can embed on their web site and begin attacking major and popular including well known Russian web sites. The second major development in the currently ongoing cyberwar between Russia and Ukraine is the use of a crowd-sourced DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack platform where users are prompted to download and install a Windows based application which will later on automatically start launching DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks against Russian infrastructure using everyone’s bandwidth.
In this qualitative and analytical perspective and analysis I’ll walk you through the current situation in cyberspace between Russia and Ukraine and offer an in-depth perspective on some of the current tools of the trade utilized and used by both Russia and Ukraine in cyberspace in an attempt to bring down everyone’s infrastructure.
