US, Britain hold Russian Federation responsible for global cyber attack

US, Britain hold Russian Federation responsible for global cyber attack

Mrs May accused Russian Federation and Syria of attempting to cover up the attack.

As tensions remain high over Russia's involvement in Syria, its alleged tampering in the 2016 United States election and the poisoning of a former Russian spy, the UK and USA say that Russia will be held accountable for the cyber-attacks.

Moscow blamed the delay on the Western air strikes.

Mrs May is expected to face anger in the Commons after launching military action without securing the support of Parliament.

When asked if further action would be taken, he said: "The most important thing at this point is to attribute it".

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has insisted the strikes - which were co-ordinated with action by the United States and France - were "right for the UK and right for the world".

Her office said she planned to tell them the strikes were "in Britain's national interest" and were carried out to stop further suffering from chemical weapons attacks.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made this clear on Monday as he arrived at a meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Luxembourg, telling reporters: "I'm afraid the Syrian war will go on in its terrible, miserable way".

"The Government's own justification, which relies heavily on the strongly contested doctrine of humanitarian intervention, does not even meet its own tests".

"Never before have we joined together with the same advice to our industry and our citizens about how to deal with attacks, and these attacks are significant because they against internet infrastructure across the core and the edge of internet connectivity, which the NCSC has been tracking for around a year".

Mrs May will ask for the emergency debate to allow more time for discussion in a nod to the fury among MPs at not being consulted.

"With the political and diplomatic actions that we're taking now, we wanted their friends Iran and Russian Federation to know that we meant business and that they were going to be feeling the pain from this as well", she said.

Underlining the significance of the risk, White House cyber security coordinator Rob Joyce said that anyone who "owns the router" can monitor all the traffic and consequently has the ability to do things such as harvest credentials and modify or deny traffic. "We will attribute where we can", he said, accusing Russian Federation of "not playing by the same rules" and of "blurring the boundaries between criminal and state activity".

"We are determined to completely crush ISIS and create the conditions that will prevent its return".

"Russian government activities continue to threaten our respective safety, security, and the very integrity of our cyber ecosystem", she said.
