Russia denies latest US, UK hacking allegations

By Straight Arrow News

(Reuters) – Russia’s embassy in Washington said on Friday that Moscow categorically denied new hacking allegations levelled against it a day earlier by U.S. and British authorities.

The two governments said in a joint advisory on Thursday that Russian spies accused of interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election had spent much of the past two years abusing virtual private networks to target hundreds of organizations worldwide.

Russia’s embassy in Washington said on Facebook that it hoped the United States would refrain from making what it called further unfounded allegations and focus instead on working with Russia to fight cybercrime.

Hackers based in Russia have perpetrated more than 1,000 cyber attacks this year, and the majority of those attacks have targeted companies and infrastructure in the United States.
