News Tech: Stéphane Bouillon, Secretary General of Defense and National Security for the French Parliament’s National Assembly, convened a meeting on July 17 where the scale of recent cyberattacks was discussed.

Bouillon recalled the assault on VIASAT that was launched by Russia on February 24, the same day that a large-scale European conflict was started by the invasion of Russian forces into Ukraine.

The French National Agency for the Security of Information Systems (ANSSI) reports that there were 1,082 confirmed intrusions in 2016—a 37% increase from the previous year.

“During the war in Ukraine, we expected many cyberattacks from Russia, but we’ve seen very few to date. The only notable attack was the one on VIASAT, used by the Ukrainian military to communicate and stretching throughout Western Europe. […] In our country, it affected ambulance (phone number: 15) and firefighters (18) emergency services,” said Bouillon. He did not provide any additional details on the attack.

The owners of wind farms Deutsche Windtechnik and Nordex experienced what are thought to be ransomware assaults. Due to the attack on VIASAT’s network, another operator of wind turbines, Enercon, had its remote controls destroyed.
