Germany Says It Has To Assume Russia Behind Recent Cyber Attack

British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing a huge public backlash after bombing Syria without the backing of Parliament US and UK Issue Joint Alert Warning of Russian Cyber Attacks

Senior security officials in the USA and United Kingdom issued a joint statement Monday blaming Russia for a "malicious" cyber offensive aimed at stealing intellectual property and possible espionage to support the "Russian Federation's national security and economic goals", ABC News reports.

The two nations allege routers in government buildings as well as small offices could have fallen victim, while critical infrastructure and internet service providers could have also been compromised.

"The EU calls upon all countries, notably Russian Federation and Iran, to use their influence to prevent any further use of chemical weapons, notably by the Syrian regime", the EU said in comments to a meeting of the global chemical weapons watchdog, seen by Reuters.

Separately, the White House has said American objectives in Syria have not altered, reiterating that President Donald Trump wants USA troops home "as quickly as possible".

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. The announcement has come amid heightened tensions between the two countries and Russian Federation.

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.

"Without UN authority it was again a matter of the U.S. and British governments arrogating to themselves an authority to act unilaterally which they do not possess". "Therefore allegations of this towards Russian Federation are groundless", Peskov said. We'll continue to expose Russia's unacceptable cyber behaviour, so they're held accountable for what they do, and to help government and industry protect themselves.

"The US mission has not changed - the President has been clear that he wants US forces to come home as quickly as possible", press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

"Even if the OPCW team is able to visit Douma to gather information to make that assessment - and they are now being prevented from doing so by the regime and the Russians - it can not attribute responsibility", she said.

In the conference call with journalists, Martin said that this joint action demonstrates that there is something that can be done between countries and within countries, with government giving advice to industry and citzens about what action to take.

However, the inspection comes after the United States, France and the United Kingdom attacked Syria with the announced objective of destroying facilities that produce chemical weapons, for which they used the alleged incident in Duma as a pretext.
