CY­BER­AT­TACK WARN­ING

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

LON­DON: The US and Britain on Mon­day is­sued an un­prece­dented warn­ing that Rus­sian state-spon­sored hack­ers may launch a global cy­ber­at­tack. The likely tar­gets would be in­ter­net ser­vice providers, gov­ern­ments, the pri­vate sec­tor and crit­i­cal in­fras­truc­ture, ac­cord­ing to a joint state­ment from the Bri­tish Na­tional Cy­ber­se­cu­rity Cen­tre, the FBI and the US Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity. The im­mi­nent at­tack was not, how­ever, linked to al­lied na­tions’ mis­sile strikes on Satur­day in Syria. – dpa
