The Ukraine Cyber Bot Army

Ukraine is drafting legislation to legalize a cyber army. Oh boy. Do you really want to fight a cyber army with Russia? May I remind them what happened in 2017 when Russian hackers basically turned Ukraine OFF?

But alas, that seems to be the plan. New laws in Ukraine would turn an international pro-Ukrainian “hacktivist” group into a “cyber-reserve” military unit.

Secretary of Ukraine’s National Coordination Center for Cybersecurity Natalia Tkachuk told Newsweek that a law regulating the “creation and functioning of cyber forces” was being fast tracked at the Ukrainian Defense Ministry. She added that would be the “basis for building the state’s cyber defense capabilities, engaging cyber volunteers in these activities, and creating a cyber reserve.”

The “international” part is also a bit concerning. Wouldn’t this have the potential to drag countries into this war that are not currently associated with the war? And would it also turn international hackers on normal people who are critical of the war? Many concerning questions here!
