Russian Federation behind global cyber attack: U.S. and UK

British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing a huge public backlash after bombing Syria without the backing of Parliament CYBER WAR: UK, US Accuse PUTIN of Launching Global Hacking Campaign

The warning on Monday came from the US Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Britain's National Cyber Security Center. The main advice offered to companies and individuals was to make sure router software was up to date and passwords were secure.

In an extraordinary joint statement, authorities in the USA and the United Kingdom revealed that Russian Federation has been probing the cyber-defences to identify vulnerabilities that will "lay a foundation for future offensive operations".

Britain would consider launching a cyber attack against Russian Federation in retaliation if Russian Federation targeted British national infrastructure, the Sunday Times reported, citing unnamed security sources.

"Ten days ago, President Trump was saying the United States of America had a duty to disengage from Syria", Macron said during a two-hour grilling on French television, broadcast days after his government joined the USA and Britain in launching strikes against alleged Syrian regime chemical weapons facilities.

Ciaran Martin, CEO of the UK National Cyber Security Centre said: "Russia is our most capable hostile adversary in cyber space so dealing with their attacks is a major priority for the National Cyber Security Centre and our U.S. allies".

Mrs May accused Russian Federation and Syria of attempting to cover up the attack. "Therefore allegations of this towards Russian Federation are groundless", Peskov said. Last month the Trump administration blamed Russian Federation for a campaign of cyber attacks stretching back at least two years that targeted the USA power grid. On Thursday, a British spy chief said that his GCHQ agency would "continue to expose Russia's unacceptable cyber behaviour", adding there would be increasing demand for its cyber expertise.

"The UK will continue to respond to malicious cyber activity in conjunction with worldwide partners such as the United States".

These operations, he said, have made a significant contribution to coalition efforts to suppress Daesh propaganda, hindered their ability to coordinate attacks and protected coalition forces on the battlefield. "But this is the first time the United Kingdom has systematically and persistently degraded an adversary's online efforts as part of a wider military campaign", he said.

"We know that these capabilities are very powerful", he said.

And shadow attorney general Baroness Chakrabarti questioned the Government's justification for the airstrikes, telling BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "You can't use force under global law just to punish Syria for bad behaviour".

When asked if further action would be taken, he said: "The most important thing at this point is to attribute it".

Her office said she planned to tell them the strikes were "in Britain's national interest" and were carried out to stop further suffering from chemical weapons attacks.
