Statement by Sergey Shykevich, Threat Intelligence Group Manager at Check Point Research:

“We see a change in the direction of cyber attacks at a certain point during the war. Starting in the third quarter of 2022, we see a decrease in attacks against Ukraine, while we also see an increase in attacks against some NATO countries. "

"We see the development of efforts specifically against specific NATO countries that are more hostile to Russia. Some of these attacks are malware attacks and some of them are focused on information operations around specific political, geopolitical and military events.”
