Russia Accused of Hacking by Australia and Britain

  • Both Australia and Britain government think that the military of Russia is responsible for carrying out reckless and indiscriminate cyber attacks around the globe. The military is also being blamed for US Democratic National Committee's hacking in the year 2016. Jeremy Hunt, the British Foreign Secretary, has said in a statement that it was found by Britain's National Cyber Security Centre that hackers were indeed Russian GRU intelligence service operatives. Hunt stated “The GRU's actions are reckless and indiscriminate: they try to undermine and interfere in elections in other countries; they are even prepared to damage Russian companies and Russian citizens. This pattern of behavior demonstrates their desire to operate without regard to international law or established norms and to do so with a feeling of impunity and without consequences.”
