    Ukrainian authorities have avoided a second cyberattack, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said in an announcement that suggests that the effort to wreak electronic havoc across Ukraine is ongoing.

    Ukraine is still trying to find its feet after scores or even hundreds of businesses and government agencies were hit by an explosion of data-scrambling software on June 27.

    Avakov said in a statement posted to his Facebook page that what he described as the second stage of that malware attack had been timed to hit its peak at 4 p.m. Ukraine time on Tuesday.

    Like the first attack, Tuesday's originated from the Ukrainian tax firm M.E. Doc, Avakov said.
