WASHINGTON - The Luhansk People's Republic, a region that has claimed independence from Ukraine with the backing of Russia's military, isn't recognized by the United States, the European Union or NATO. But it has a hacking army and it's targeting the Ukrainian government and military, according to new research from the cybersecurity company FireEye. This is probably the most extreme case to date of an ultra-small group targeting a national government with a sophisticated hacking operation, John Hultquist, FireEye's director of intelligence analysis who co-wrote the report, told me. And it could usher in a new era of small nations or nonstate actors developing sophisticated hacking operations, he said. That could mean a big headache for the United States and other global powers, which will have to defend themselves against a new slate of digital adversaries. "We're focused on the big players . . . and for good reason," Hultquist said. "But we should bear in mind that if this small substate can put together a [hacking] capability, then anyone can." The major hacking powers the United States considers adversaries are Russia, China, Iran and North Korea - all of which have developed extensive capabilities and launched major, successful cyberattacks against U.S. targets in government and industry. A small nation or nonstate group is highly unlikely to be able to pull off a major hack, such as Russia's breach of the Democratic National Committee or China's alleged theft of millions of background checks from the Office of Personnel Management, Hultquist said. But that doesn't mean they couldn't do serious damage. Hacking is "an asymmetric capability," Hultquist said. "Those groups may not be sufficiently advanced to cause a major threat to the U.S. government, but they may...
