Russian Federation launches disinformation campaign to defend Syria

Russian Federation launches disinformation campaign to defend Syria

According to officials, they have even prepared for a direct cyber-attack on United Kingdom national infrastructure, pointing out that they had "pre-positioned" inside Russian computer networks and would launch a retaliatory attack if the United Kingdom was targeted.

In Australia, hundreds of businesses were affectedin 2017 but no information was compromised, the ABC understands.

The French government said Saturday that it launched a military response based on unspecified intelligence and open-source information, which included "testimonies, photos and videos that spontaneously appeared on specialized websites, in the press and on social media in the hours and days following the attack".

The Australian Cyber Security Centre has been providing mitigation advice to companies and internet service providers that may have been affected. Treasurer Scott Morrison told SBS News "no Australian departments or agencies" were impacted.

"Any escalation in Syria may also instigate unrest elsewhere in the region, either against the U.S. or its allies, raising the threat to the delivery of energy supplies", analysts at Barclays Capital warned in a research note published before the missile attacks.

Organisations can use publicly available cyber security guidance and best practices from DHS, allied governments, vendors and the private-sector cyber security community on mitigation strategies for the exploitation vectors to safeguard their networks.

Russian Federation says US-led attack on Syria will hit peace talks
McKenzie said 105 U.S. and allied missiles were fired, of which 66 were Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from aboard three U.S. Meanwhile, the Defense Ministry in a statement said Russian military bases in Syria had not been affected by the joint strike .

"These incidents are unacceptable and the Australian government calls on all countries, including Russian Federation, not to take actions that could lead to damage of critical infrastructure that provide services to the public".

"They're legacy pieces of equipment that are being phased out but they've got vulnerabilities as a result of the fact that they, for example, have not been patched".

The US government assessed that cyber actors supported by the Russian government carried out this worldwide campaign.

"We had an attack on the Foreign Ministry where we have to assume that it stemmed from Russian Federation". Contributions of 200 words or more will be considered for publication. "Therefore allegations of this towards Russian Federation are groundless", Peskov said.

Syria agreed to give up its chemical weapons arsenal in 2013 and submit to OPCW inspections to avert USA retaliation after a suspected nerve gas attack in Douma killed hundreds of people.

Mr Martin said authorities had been tracking the campaign for about a year and the tactics behind them for longer. Unknown persons broke into the hospital, where patients were treated, after a fire in a building, with exclamations that they were the target of a chemical attack and threw water with a hose on the patients, who panicked, the witnesses narrated.
