United States and UK issue joint cybersecurity warning about Russian Federation

Britain's National Cyber Security Centre, the US Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a joint statement on the attack, which they said began in 2015 and could have laid the groundwork for further cyber attacks in the future.

It followed a series of warnings by Western governments that Moscow is behind a string of cyberattacks.

No comment from Russia: Moscow has not responded to the statement. The United States, Britain and other nations in February accused Russian Federation of releasing the "NotPetya" virus, which in 2017 crippled parts of Ukraine's infrastructure and damaged computers across the globe, costing companies billions of dollars.

The United States, Britain and France fired more than 100 missiles at three alleged chemical weapons facilities on Friday, angering Syria's military backer Moscow, which threatened to retaliate.

USA intelligence agencies a year ago accused Russian Federation of interfering in the 2016 election with a hacking and propaganda campaign supporting Donald Trump's campaign for president.

Millions of devices belonging to government offices, internet service providers and critical infrastructure operators were affected, the statement continued. They did not identify victims or provide details on the impact of the attacks.

Bad relations: Tensions are already strained between the two sides.

The Kremlin said on Tuesday it did not understand the basis for British and US allegations that Russian Federation was conducting a global cyber espionage campaign.

"Grizzly Steppe": The US Department of Homeland Security separately said the attack was part of a larger Russian-backed operation called "Grizzly Steppe".

The inspectors arrived in Syria on Saturday to examine whether chemical weapons were used in Douma on April 7, killing at least 70 civilians - and what kind.

Shortly after the announcement, the White House said Joyce would leave his post and return to the U.S. National Security Agency.

Mr Taylor, who is in the United States meeting government officials to discuss cyber security, said it was crucial Canberra worked with Washington to build defences against attacks.
