Rus­sia link to lab hack

The Sunday Times - - World -

DUTCH au­thor­i­ties ex­pelled two sus­pected Rus­sian spies who tried to hack into a Swiss lab­o­ra­tory that con­ducts tests for the UN-backed chem­i­cal weapons watch­dog, Switzer­land’s in­tel­li­gence agency says.

Rus­sian of­fi­cials claimed ear­lier this year the lab an­a­lysed sam­ples linked to the poi­son­ing of former Rus­sian spy Sergei Skri­pal and his daugh­ter in Sal­is­bury, Eng­land. The lab’s An­dreas Bucher said there had been in­di­ca­tions “we have been in the cross-hairs of hack­ers in the last few months”.
