On Monday, the United States and Britain alleged that Russian government-backed hackers had infected computer routers around the world. They allege a cyber espionage campaign that targeted government agencies, businesses and critical infrastructure operators. U.S. and British officials told reporters in a conference call that they planned to issue a joint alert on the attacks. The attacks targeted routers that form a key part of the internet infrastructure in a cyber espionage campaign that could be leveraged in the future to launch offensive attacks. “When we see malicious cyber activity, whether it be from the Kremlin or other malicious nation-state actors, we are going to push back,” said Rob Joyce, the White House cybersecurity coordinator. The White House in February blamed Russia for the devastating ‘NotPetya’ cyber attack in 2017, joining the British government in condemning Russia for unleashing a virus that crippled parts of Ukraine’s infrastructure and damaged computers across the globe.
