Massive malfunction of drone control program: Ukraine's intelligence hacks Russian equipment
The Defense Intelligence of Ukraine has announced a new successful cyberattack on Russian drone control programs, which suffered a massive failure
Ukraine’s Defense Intelligence writes about it on its telegram channel.
"The cyber specialists of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine have carried out another successful operation against the Russian occupiers - as of February 8, 2024, the enemy complains of a massive malfunction of the drone control program," the statement said.
It is noted that the Russians install this program to reflash DJI drones to meet the needs of combat operations. However, due to the attack, all servers stopped working, so all software is recognized as "foreign" and denies access to them.
"Without access to the servers, and thus to the system, it is probably impossible to control the drones from the consoles. Now the enemy is trying to solve the problem in every possible way, including by switching to manual control mode," the intelligence service said.
Last month, the military intelligence of Ukraine carried out a successful cyberattack on the server of the Russian Ministry of Defense, which the Russian military uses for special communications.
