The war situation in Ukraine has become a breeding ground for cyber criminals, who have been launching various criminal activities targeting European individuals. However, thanks to the efforts of a highly organized cyber crime law enforcement team in Ukraine, several gangs responsible for large-scale phishing attacks have been apprehended. In March of this year, a collaborative operation involving Ukrainian and Czech police, as well as other national law enforcement agencies across Europe, led to the arrest of multiple individuals involved in phishing attacks. The criminal gang operated over 100 portals and amassed approximately 4.5 million euros in illicit gains.

Recently, on June 17th, Ukrainian cyber law enforcement authorities successfully dismantled yet another criminal organization that was exploiting stolen credit card information from European victims. The cyber law enforcement agency arrested five individuals who had been using phishing websites to steal credit card information. Thanks to the swift actions of the Ukrainian cyber law enforcement agency, the damage was contained, with an estimated loss of around 25,000 euros. It was discovered that the criminals had been using the illegal credit cards to purchase luxury products in Kiev.

The Ukrainian cyber authorities are continuing their investigation into the case, and the suspects could face up to 12 years of imprisonment. They are being charged with cybercrime offenses and involvement in a criminal organization. Despite the challenging situation in Ukraine, it is reassuring to witness the authorities prioritizing the fight against these types of crimes. It is important to note that this criminal activity originates from Ukraine but is orchestrated by non-Ukrainians.

In an effort to gather information and expose the criminals and their modus operandi, has created a dedicated forum thread to address the cybercrime threat originating from Ukraine. The platform encourages individuals to actively participate, share relevant information, and contribute to the collective fight against cybercrime. By doing so, they can provide support to the commendable work of the Ukrainian cyber law enforcement agency.

The recent successes in Ukraine underscore the importance of prioritizing cybercrime prevention and law enforcement. It is crucial for individuals and organizations to remain vigilant against cyber threats originating from Ukraine, particularly those perpetrated by non-Ukrainian actors. By staying informed and actively engaging in initiatives such as the forum, we can collectively create a safer digital environment and assist the tireless efforts of the Ukrainian cyber law enforcement agency.
