Disinformation Campaigns Using Compromised Accounts

Meta said it has seen a surge in hacking attempts against Ukrainians in recent days. It identified some hacking attempts from a threat actor that has been trying to hack the accounts of high-profile Ukrainians, including military officials and public figures, although it did not identify any individuals. The threat actor typically targets people through email compromise and then uses that to gain access to their social media accounts and post disinformation as if it’s coming from the legitimate account owners.
