According to Viasat, a cyberattack is responsible for the broadband outage among customers in Ukraine and other European countries.
The countries concerned use the satellite communications company’s European KA-SAT network.
“Our investigation into the outage continues, but so far we believe it was caused by a cyber event. We are investigating and analyzing our European network and systems to identify the root cause and are taking additional network precautions to prevent further impacts while we attempt to recover service to affected customers,” said Christina Phillips, Vice President of Public Relations at Viasat.
The company said law enforcement agencies, government partners and external cybersecurity firms are all working together to investigate the incident.
According to NetBlocks, the outage began on February 24 and has continued ever since. Many ISPs believe that the incident began on the same day that Russia invaded Ukraine.
