Hackers trojan ISOs and installation files and post them for free on torrent trackers, the service explained.

Russian hackers distribute infected software using torrent trackers. The State Service for Special Communications and Information Protection reported this on Sunday, March 19.

“The State Service for Special Communications warns that downloading hacked software is dangerous. Usually, such software is distributed using torrent trackers, which are actively used by attackers, including special Russian service, which adds malicious code to the hacked software,” the message said. .

It says that Russian hackers have trojanized ISOs and installation files and are making them freely available on torrent trackers.

“If the victim downloads and installs such files on his computer, hackers can gain access to its contents and can remain invisible for a long time,” the service insists.

It is indicated that in many post-Soviet countries, system administrators still use unlicensed software (including operating systems) in institutions and companies of various forms of ownership, distributed using torrent trackers.

“Installing hacked software from torrents, they actually provide Russian intelligence services with access to the contents of working machines. It is especially dangerous to use a hacked operating system, because in this case, the attackers have full administrative access to the computer it is installed on. Ordinary Ukrainian users are also at risk in the zone by installing unlicensed software from unofficial sources, in particular, torrents,” concluded the State Service for Special Communications.

Recall that this week there was a cyber attack on the state resources of Ukraine, including the unified and state registries, websites of the Ministry of Justice.
