The alert warns that the main targets of this malicious cyber activity are critical infrastructure providers and government and private sector organisations, as well as ISPs supporting these sectors. The statement did not identify any victims by name.

But Russia's embassy in London issued a statement citing British accusations of cyber threats from Moscow as "striking examples of a reckless, provocative and unfounded policy against Russia".

It followed a series of warnings by Western governments that Moscow is behind a string of cyber attacks.

USA intelligence agencies a year ago accused Russian Federation of interfering in the 2016 election with a hacking and propaganda campaign supporting Donald Trump's campaign for president.

The accusations come at a time of dramatically increased tensions between Russian Federation and the west.

As tensions remain high over Russia's involvement in Syria, its alleged tampering in the 2016 United States election and the poisoning of a former Russian spy, the UK and USA say that Russia will be held accountable for the cyber-attacks.

But the United Kingdom and U.S. remain steadfast in their accusations, with the UK'S National Cyber Security Centre alleging that one of Russia's motives was to "potentially lay a foundation for future offensive operations" and that multiple sources support the accusations against Russian Federation. We'll continue to expose Russia's unacceptable cyber behaviour, so they're held accountable for what they do, and to help government and industry protect themselves. "Multiple sources including private and public-sector cybersecurity research organizations and allies have reported this activity to the US and United Kingdom governments". Monday's announcement appears to reflect a desire to publicize a threat quickly and widely even before officials completely understand its breadth.

Russian Federation has hacked into millions of computers across Britain, including home terminals and internet routers, and may be preparing for a widescale cyber attack, USA and United Kingdom security chiefs said in an unprecedented warning last night.
