The world says "Zut alors!" to a critical infrastructure incident in France. Microsoft and Ukraine take measure of Russian cyber aggression. And what's beyond for Thunderdome. This is CyberScoop for April 28. (Note: The CyberScoop newsletter will not publish on April 29. It will next publish on May 2.)

French fiber optic cable attacks alarm experts

A series of coordinated attacks on fiber optic cables powering the French internet disrupted service throughout France Wednesday. They also highlighted what many experts say is a scary critical infrastructure vulnerability. The cables, which were reportedly cut in two places to make repairs more difficult, were in some cases dug up from underground by perpetrators. A former CISA official said American officials will surely note the attacks, particularly in light of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict. French law enforcement, including the country's internal intelligence service, are investigating the attacks as a criminal matter. Suzanne Smalley has more.

Microsoft says: Expect Russia to launch more cyberattacks against Ukraine

Russia began positioning itself in Ukraine's infrastructure as early as March 2021, or nearly a year before it invaded Ukraine, according to Microsoft research released Wednesday. Since the conflict began, Microsoft reports observing close to 40 destructive attacks targeting hundreds of systems. More than 40% of destructive attacks were aimed at organizations in critical infrastructure sectors. Microsoft researchers concluded that attacks could become more destructive as the war rages on, though Ukrainian officials have offered a differing view — that the severity of attacks seems to have plateaued.

DISA setting direction for Thunderdome cybersecurity initiative

The Defense Information Security Agency is fleshing out plans for its Thunderdome program, which is aimed at helping the Pentagon implement a zero-trust cybersecurity model, a DISA official said Wednesday. A meeting scheduled for next week could be pivotal. “Monday we have an agencywide technical and direction-setting discussion … to ensure that we are building out … the most optimal way ahead,” Jason Martin, digital capabilities and security center director at DISA, told reporters on the sidelines of AFCEA’s TechNet Cyber conference. Jon Harper reports at FedScoop.
