UK blames Russia for hack

Reuters / No Comments Share:

LONDON/MOSCOW (Reuters) – Britain blamed Russia yesterday for a cyber-attack last year, publicly pointing the finger at Moscow for spreading a virus which disrupted companies across Europe including UK-based Reckitt Benckiser. Russia denied the accusation, saying it was part of a “Russophobic” campaign it said was being waged by some Western countries. The so-called NotPetya attack in June started in Ukraine where it crippled government and business computers before spreading around the world, halting operations at ports, factories and offices. Britain’s foreign ministry said the attack originated from the Russian military. Moscow has previously denied being behind the NotPetya attack.
