United Kingdom to Russian Federation on alleged cyber campaign: 'You will not succeed'

Share

Cyber security representatives from the USA and Britain have warned of Russian state-sponsored cyber-attacks that are targeting network infrastructure devices such as routers and firewalls, to compromise government and private sectors globally. Multiple sources, including private and public-sector cyber security research organisations and allies, have reported this activity to the Us and United Kingdom governments.

Meanwhile the White House cyber security coordinator Rob Joyce will leave his post and return to the National Security Agency, a White House National Security Council spokesman said.

Cyber Security Minister Angus Taylor blamed the Kremlin for the attacks, which he described as a "very important escalation" to ABC.

"When we see malicious cyber activity, whether it be from the Kremlin or other malicious actors, we're going to push back", Joyce said. "To say we know where this came from ... and it's unacceptable behaviour".

The White House in February blamed Russian Federation for the devastating "NotPetya" cyber attack in 2017, joining the British Government in condemning Russian Federation for unleashing a virus that crippled parts of Ukraine's infrastructure and damaged computers across the globe.

Britain and the United States have previously flagged responses including fresh sanctions, indictments and online retaliation. "While DHS cannot protect every network at all times, we can ensure that we are all collectively empowered to secure our networks through government and industry working together".

These network devices make "ideal targets", said Manfra, Homeland Security's assistant secretary for cybersecurity and communications. Multiple studies have found that companies often install routers with their default passwords (often simply 1-2-3-4), making them child's play to break into.

The UK government will continue to work with the USA, other global allies and industry partners to expose Russia's unacceptable cyber behaviour, so they are held accountable for their actions. They are seeking the cooperation of home office and private-sector business owners in sharing information if they determine their networks have been compromised.

In November 2016 they saw Russian cyber actors scanning a basic Internet protocol for finding devices that are on Internet networks, looking for vulnerable infrastructure devices such as routers that could be easily hacked.

"We don't have full insight into the scope of the compromise", said Jeanette Manfra, a cyber security official for the US Department of Homeland Security. It was not clear whether that compromise was part of the same campaign.
