According to the local press report, the hacker used a malicious software(probably RAT – Remote Access Trojan) to control the victim’s computers for almost two years.  It is said he also observed the activities of victims using web camera. The hacker is said to invaded personal life of about 100 people.

A Search and Seizure warrant was executed at the hacker’s home, leading to the video recordings of victims and malicious software used in the Cyber espionage.

The motive of the espionage is not clear.  One of the theory says that he received order from some one to target people and got money.  The theory might be true as some of the victims were also members of Ukrainian political parties.
