  • Britain, US sanction Russian hackers over years-long FSB cyberespionage campaign

Reuters exclusively reported that The British and U.S. governments imposed sanctions on two Russian hackers on Thursday for what Britain’s foreign office said was a sustained but failed attempt to interfere in politics by Russian cyber spies. A hacking group cybersecurity researchers dubbed “Cold River”, working on behalf of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), targeted British politicians, journalists and non-profit groups over a period of several years, the foreign office said in a statement, which added that Britain had summoned the Russian ambassador over the issue.
