The United States and Britain on Monday accused Russian Federation of launching cyber attacks on computer routers, firewalls and other networking equipment used by government agencies, businesses and critical infrastructure operators around the globe.

Hackers backed by the Russian government exploited "large numbers of" routers and switches around the world since 2015.

The Kremlin did not immediately respond to a request for comment late on Monday.

The attack focused on governments, businesses, "critical infrastructure", and internet service providers. They did not identify any victims or provide details on the impact of the attacks. Last month the Trump administration blamed Russian Federation for a campaign of cyber attacks stretching back at least two years that targeted the USA power grid.

"Multiple sources including private and public-sector cybersecurity research organizations and allies have reported this activity to the US and United Kingdom governments".
