Czech Republic exposes a group of Russian hackers

Hackers acted undercover. They formally founded two private companies in Prague and were engaged in the sale of computers and software.

In Czech Republic, a group of Russian hackers was operating under cover for more than two years. According to the author of the investigation, Ondřej Kundra, they performed cyber attacks in the countries of the European Union, Radio Svoboda reports.

They found that the group of cybercriminals included citizens of Russia and the Czech Republic. The hackers acted undercover. They formally founded two private companies in Prague and were engaged in the sale of computers and software, but they could actually engage in cyber attacks, the media said.
