Details: Hackers are observed to trojanize ISO and installation files and make them freely available on torrent trackers.

If a victim downloads and installs such files on their computer, hackers gain access to their content and can remain invisible for a long time.

Appointment: “In many post-Soviet countries, system administrators still use unlicensed software (including operating systems) in institutions and companies of various forms of ownership, which is distributed via torrent trackers.

By installing pirated torrent software, you actually provide access to Russian secret services through the content of working machines. Especially dangerous is the use of a hacked operating system, because in this case, the attackers have full administrative access to the computer on which it is installed.

Ordinary users in Ukraine are also at risk of installing unlicensed software from unofficial sources, such as torrents.”
