Ukraine outs another Gamaredon operation. Lawmakers critique potential plans for big revisions to NSPM-13. And Gen. Paul Nakasone gives more insight about what the U.S. is doing to help Ukraine's cyber-operations. This is CyberScoop for April 6.

'War crimes' phishing lures unsuccessful so far, Ukraine says

A late March phishing campaign targeting Ukrainian entities with documents purporting to discuss purported Russian war crimes was unsuccessful as far as authorities there can tell, a top Ukrainian cybersecurity official told reporters Tuesday. The Ukrainians say the campaign was the work of a hacking group — typically known as Gamaredon or Armageddon — that operates under the Russian FSB and is based in Crimea. Ukrainian officials had previously accused it of launching more than 5,000 cyberattacks against more than 1,500 government computers since 2014. AJ Vicens has more.

Lawmakers criticize administration review of DOD cyber authorities

The White House's plans to potentially scale back broad authorities that the Department of Defense has held since 2018 to launch cyber-operations sparked criticism from legislators at House and Senate Armed Service Committee hearings Tuesday. Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, said he strongly opposes changing the Trump-era decision known as NSPM-13, calling such a move “a grave mistake [that] would undermine deterrence at the worst possible moment.” Suzanne Smalley has the story.

Nakasone talks about ‘hunting forward’ in Ukraine

NSA and U.S. Cyber Command leader Gen. Paul Nakasone gave more details Tuesday about how the two agencies have assisted Ukraine’s cyber-operators since the Russian invasion. So-called hunt forward teams sat side-by-side with partners to gain insights into threats, he told senators. Those efforts not only help Ukraine, he said, but also provide advanced notice of threats that could also affect U.S. systems. Mark Pomerleau reports at FedScoop.

Indictment, sanctions follow Hydra takedown

Tuesday's takedown of the Hydra dark web marketplace was a big score for German law enforcement and its American partners. Two of those U.S. agencies — the departments of Treasury and Justice — followed up the sting with announcements that Hydra's alleged leader had been sanctioned and indicted on charges of conspiring to distribute narcotics and to commit money laundering. Treasury also sanctioned Garantex, a Russia-based cryptocurrency exchange that allegedly handled a lot of funds from activity at Hydra. Joe Warminsky has the update.
