Russian Federation accused of global net hack attacks

"We have high confidence that Russian Federation has carried out a coordinated campaign to gain access to enterprise, small office, home office routers known as SOHO routers and residential routers, and the switches and connectors worldwide", said Rob Joyce, special assistant to the President and cybersecurity coordinator at the White House, speaking to journalists.

"The activity highlighted today is part of a repeated pattern of disruptive and harmful malicious cyber action carried out by the Russian government", Federal Bureau of Investigation deputy assistant director Howard Marshall said in a statement online.

The advisory says network devices are ideal targets because nearly all network traffic passes through them. The attack strategy let Russian Federation peer at the data passing through the compromised devices, whether that be business or intelligence-related. But it is too early to know for sure if this is the case, since it takes time to spot this - if it is spotted at all - and to be sure it is Russian.

The Sunday Times reported this weekend that the United Kingdom is poised to consider a retaliatory attack should Russian Federation launch a coordinated cyber hack.

It's warned that a Russian government campaign to exploit these devices threatens safety, security, and economic well-being of the United States and the UK.

What no-one is quite sure of is whether this creates a deterrent a bit like mutually assured nuclear destruction in the Cold War.

"Whoever controls the routing infrastructure of a network essentially controls the data flowing through the network", the advisory says, a possibility that might allow for denial of service, information manipulation or physical destruction in the context of critical infrastructure.

Martin said the attacks could be designed for spying, stealing intellectual property or possibly "prepositioning for use in times of heightened tension".

"When we see malicious cyber-activity, whether Kremlin or other nation state actors, we are going to push back", said Mr Joyce. It had also let attackers cripple firewalls and intrusion detection systems that organizations use to flag malicious internet traffic, according to the BBC.

Taylor said while the devices could have been used to access sensitive data, there was "no indication" Australian information had been compromised.

The chief of Britain's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) based at GCHQ in Cheltenham, Glos, said Russian Federation was "our most capable hostile adversary in cyberspace" and that "dealing with their attacks is a major priority" for British and American spooks.

The advice given to firms has included ways to configure their systems correctly and how to apply patches to address hardware vulnerabilities. Further intelligence about the attacks had been added by "multiple" cyber-security organisations and companies, he added.
