In an announcement posted on Facebook, Ukraine’s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) said the hackers were using password-stealing emails to break into Ukrainian soldiers’ email accounts and using the compromised address books to send further malicious messages.

The CERT said blamed a Minsk-based group codenamed “UNC1151” for the hacking, identifying its members as officers of Belarusian military.
