LONDON: The National Cyber Security Centre of the United Kingdom along with the Forensic Bureau of Investigation and the United State Department of Homeland Security has issued a formal warning regarding the global cyber attacks by the Russian government.

The UK and the US issued a joint alert accusing Moscow of mounting a 'malicious' internet offensive that appeared to be aimed at espionage, stealing intellectual property and laying the foundation for an attack on infrastructure, as reported by the Guardian.

A rare joint conference was held by the senior security officials of the UK and the US to blame the Kremlin for targeting the government institutions, private sector organizations, and infrastructure.

Rob Joyce, the White House cyber-security coordinator has issued a range of actions including sanctions and indictments upon Russia.

Joyce further said that the meeting is not connected to Friday's raid over Syria.

It was not retaliation for the US, UK and French attack as the US and UK had been investigating the cyber-offensive for months.

The representatives from the FBI, the US Department of Homeland Security and the UK's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), which is part of the surveillance agency GCHQ participated in the meeting.

Further, the cyber-exploits were directed at network infrastructure devices worldwide such as routers, switches, firewalls, network intrusion detection system.
