US, UK Charge "Russian-Backed Hackers" With Infecting Routers In "Global Cyber Espionage Campaign"

Following both UK and US officials proclaiming that Russian "trolling" activity was up 2,000% over the weekend - while offering no evidential support for this claim - US Homeland Security, The FBI, and Britain's National Cyber Security Center issued an unprecedented joint "technical alert" warning that Russia is using compromised computer network equipment to attack U.S. and British companies and government agencies.

Bloomberg reports that the alert included advice to companies about what they can do to protect themselves and warned specifically of attacks on routers, the devices that channel data around a network. The report claims that the attacks could be an attempt by Russia to gain a foothold for use in a future offensive... (pre-crime?)

Webmaster's Commentary:

Folks, I am sorry, but this feels like "When in doubt, blame Russia!!"
