Germany Says It Has To Assume Russia Behind Recent Cyber Attack

Germany Says It Has To Assume Russia Behind Recent Cyber Attack

The warning came from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation and Britain's National Cyber Security Center and warned of specific attacks on routers.

The alert warns that the main targets of this malicious cyber activity are critical infrastructure providers and government and private sector organisations, as well as ISPs supporting these sectors.

The technical alert contains indicators of compromise (IOCs), technical details on the tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) and contextual information regarding observed behaviours on the networks of compromised victims.

Maas listed a series of what he called problematic actions by Moscow, including the lack of progress in implementing a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine, a poison gas attack in Britain, Moscow's support of the Syrian government, Russia's efforts to influence Western elections, and the cyber attack.

"Russian government activities continue to threaten our respective safety, security and the very integrity of our cyber ecosystem", said Jeanette Manfra, the UK National Protection and Programs Directorate (NPPD) Assistant Secretary for Cybersecurity and Communications.

"It wouldn't be impossible that they get through in some way that really hurts us".

"The NCSC is leading the way globally to issue advice and automate defences at scale to remove those basic attacks, thereby allowing us to focus on the most potent threats".

The German government has to assume that a cyber attack on its Foreign Ministry stemmed from Russia, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told the broadcaster ZDF on Sunday.

Last week, at the NCSC's CyberUK conference in Manchester, GCHQ director Jeremy Fleming said GCHQ has monitored and countered the growing cyber threat the Russian Federation poses to the United Kingdom and its allies for more than two decades.

Russia has heavily criticized the US, UK and France for launching airstrikes against Russia-ally Syria, while Washington and London have accused Moscow of responsibility for a nerve-agent attack against a former Russian double agent in southern England.

Vital transport links, water supplies, gas networks, banks, hospitals and air traffic control could be targeted following the US-led strikes, The Mirror reports. "But unlike Russian Federation, we abide by the law, so anything we do would be proportionately done", said one source.
