Hacking the American “DELTA” caused enormous damage to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Specialists hacked the American DELTA program, which was used by Ukraine to control troops, including mercenaries. This was reported to the publication “Southern News Service” by the adviser to the acting head of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Yan Gagin.
“The programme contains information about Ukrainian and Russian troops, as well as the coordinates of military equipment. “Now the military of the Russian Federation can view this data,” the source said.
Gagin also noted that the programme was owned not only by the Armed Forces of Ukraine but also by NATO officers who constantly coordinated with the Ukrainian General Staff.
The source added that “the plans of the enemy were revealed, which allowed the Russian army to advance at the front in recent days.”
In addition, Gagin believes that the control of the Ukrainian troops will be, if not paralyzed, then difficult, which will also play into the hands of the RF Armed Forces.
“They will have to doubt and check their own intelligence about us, which will take time,” said the adviser to the acting head of the DPR.
Military expert Daniil Bezsonov noted on his Telegram channel that the programme is “very convenient garbage.”
“The fact that our special services got access to it suggests that we now know everything about the enemy and we know everything that the enemy knows about our forces and means and their deployment,”
Delta Situational Awareness System
The Delta is a system for collecting, processing and displaying information about enemy forces, coordinating of defense forces, as well as providing situational awareness according to NATO standards, developed by the Center for Innovation and Development of Defense Technologies of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine.
The situational awareness system is used for planning operations and combat missions, coordination with other units, secure exchange of information about the location of enemy forces, etc. In particular, Delta has integrated chatbots developed by the Ministry of Digital Affairs — “eVorog” and the SSU ( “STOP Russian War”).
The system is equipped with modern means of monitoring suspicious activity. From 2021, allied cyber units are constantly scanning the system for vulnerabilities, intrusion attempts, data leaks, and more.
