Ukraine gives award to vigilantes for Russia hacks

Ukraine has recently awarded a group of vigilantes for their efforts in uncovering and thwarting Russian cyber attacks on the country. The group, known as the “Cyber Avengers,” has been credited with exposing several high-profile hacking attempts by Russian state-sponsored groups.

The award ceremony took place in Kiev, where Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky personally presented the group with medals of honor for their bravery and dedication to protecting the country’s digital infrastructure. Zelensky praised the Cyber Avengers for their vigilance and quick action in defending Ukraine against cyber threats.

The Cyber Avengers have gained a reputation for their expertise in cybersecurity and their ability to track and counter Russian hacking attempts. In a statement following the award ceremony, the group vowed to continue their efforts to safeguard Ukraine’s online security and prevent further attacks from hostile nations.

This award serves as a reminder of the important role that vigilante groups play in the ongoing battle against cyber threats. As governments and organizations around the world continue to grapple with the growing threat of cyber attacks, the efforts of groups like the Cyber Avengers are more crucial than ever.
