Poland says it too was targeted by Russian hackers

Poland said it was also “among the targets” of the Russian-controlled hacking group that attacked Germany and the Czech Republic.

“Poland stands in solidarity with Germany and with Czechia following the malicious cyber campaign against their political parties and democratic institutions,” the Polish foreign ministry said in a statement Friday.

The German government said on Friday that email accounts belonging to officials from German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s party were compromised following an attack conducted by the hacking group APT28 or Fancy Bear. The group is part of Russia’s GRU military intelligence service.

The Czech government also put out a statement backing Germany’s claims, saying its intelligence service had detected intrusions by Fancy Bear into Czech institutions around the same time.

“Poland, being also among targets of the APT 28, strongly condemns the repetitive and unacceptable malicious cyber campaigns conducted by the Russian actors,” the statement said. The foreign ministry provided no further details about the attack.
