C4ISRNET: Ukraine conflict heightens US military’s data privacy vulnerabilities

C4ISRNET: Ukraine conflict heightens US military’s data privacy vulnerabilities. “Russian operators, or at least their supporters, have flooded the inboxes of Ukrainians, particularly military service members, with malware-laden email. This tactic can be used to distribute disinformation and amass personal data to further their effort of compiling lists of Ukrainians for detention and harm. Similarly, thousands of text messages have reportedly been sent to local police and military members. This risk is not unique to Ukraine, and U.S. leaders must take steps now to harden the United States and protect its service members against similar tactics.”
