UKRAINE'S government websites have been HACKED with a notice warning people to "wait for the worst" ahead of a feared Russian invasion. With 100,000 Russian troops massed on the Ukrainian border, the huge cyberattack took place just a day after a series of talks between Moscow and the West ended in a stalemate. Authorities in Ukraine are investigating the attack, which hit a number of government websites including the ministry of foreign affairs, cabinet of ministers, and security and defence council. A message, visible on hacked government websites, said: "Ukrainian! All your personal data was uploaded to the public network. "All data on the computer is destroyed, it is impossible to restore it "All information about you has become public, be afraid and expect the worst. This is for your past, present and future." The note - written in Ukrainian, Russian and Polish - appeared when people tried to access the websites, and has since been removed after the pages were temporarily taken down. Ukraine's foreign ministry spokesperson told Reuters it was too early to say who could be behind the attack but said Russia had been behind similar strikes in the past.
