United States and UK Blame Russia for Probing Internet Routers Globally

United States and UK Blame Russia for Probing Internet Routers Globally United States and UK Blame Russia for Probing Internet Routers Globally

The alert said the targets of the campaign were primarily "government and private-sector organizations, critical infrastructure providers, and the Internet Service Providers (ISPs) supporting these sectors".

Russian Federation has been accused of utilizing aspects of cyberwarfare on numerous occasions, such as during the 2016 United States elections, the 2016 UK referendum on exiting the EU ("Brexit"), and being behind the 2017 French President e-mail leaks.

"Russian state-sponsored actors are using compromised routers to conduct spoofing "man-in-the-middle" attacks to support espionage, extract intellectual property, maintain persistent access to victim networks and potentially lay a foundation for future offensive operations". For this reason, we can not rule out that Russian may intend to use this set of compromises for future offensive cyber operations as well.

Specifically, the hackers were exploiting default passwords on users' routers, and exploiting unsecured devices in homes and business.

"The UK government will continue to work with the United States, other global allies and industry partners to expose Russia's unacceptable cyber behaviour, so they are held accountable for their actions", he commented.

Russian state-sponsored hackers are seeking to hijack critical network infrastructure devices, USA and British intelligence agencies say.

Taylor said while the devices could have been used to access sensitive data, there was "no indication" Australian information had been compromised.

Business on mind, PM Modi embarks on five-day tri-nation European trip
A counter-demonstration titled British Indians Welcome Prime Minister Modi is also planned at the same time at Parliament Square. Rahul Gandhi took to Twitter to attack PM Modi, he tweeted, 'Dear Prime Minister, Thank you for breaking your long silence.

The "purpose of these attacks could be espionage, it could be the theft of intellectual property, and of course, it could be pre-positioning for use in times of tension", said Ciaran Martin, Chief Executive of the UK's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC).

"The UK government will continue to work with the United States, other global allies and industry partners to expose Russia's unacceptable cyber behaviour, so they are held accountable for their actions", Martin added. Further intelligence about the attacks had been added by "multiple" cyber-security organisations and companies, he added.

US Homeland Security has directly condemned the Russian state for the attacks.

"The attribution of this malicious activity sends a clear message to Russian Federation - we know what you are doing and you will not succeed", the spokesman added.

The FBI also pledged to do whatever it takes to combat Russian cyberattacks. No sanctions or penalties were announced Monday, and the alert is unrelated to expected sanctions on Russian Federation in coming days, though Joyce reiterated that "all elements of U.S. power are available to push back" on such hacking efforts.

The Australian government has confirmed a series of cyberattacks on Australian organisations revealed in August past year were carried out by Russian state-sponsored hackers.
