BlackEnergy, programul malware care a fost identificat si in cazul penei de curent ce a afectat Ucraina in decembrie anul trecut a fost depistat si pe o statie de lucru a aeroportului din Kiev.
Autoritatile ucrainene atribuie atacul Rusiei. Cu toate acestea, desi serverul de comanda si control se afla in Rusia, expertii avertizeaza asupra faptului ca un atac nu ar trebui atribuit unei tari doar pe baza locatiei fizice a adresei IP.
