Russian state hackers compromised Denmark’s central bank (Danmarks Nationalbank) and planted malware that gave them access to the network for more than half a year without being detected.
The breach was part of the SolarWinds cyber espionage campaign last year that the U.S. attributed to the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, the SVR, through its hacking division commonly referred to as APT29, The Dukes, Cozy Bear, or Nobelium.
In an email statement for Version2, the bank admitted that it was affected by the SolarWinds supply-chain attack and that it took action immediately after learning of the compromise.
“Action was taken quickly and consistently in a satisfactory manner, and according to the analyzes performed, there were no signs that the attack has had any real consequences” - Denmark Central Bank
