Head of the Security Information Service (BIS) of the Czech Republic Michal Koudelka stated that his department and the Czech police exposed the activity of the Russian spying network, which, according to him, acts through the Russian Embassy in Prague as Interfax reported.
According to BIS head, this network “was created by people tied with Russian intelligence services financed from Russia and the Russian Embassy”.
Koudelka states that the members of the network planed the attacks against the goals in the Czech Republic and other countries through the internet. He also said that this network was part of the larger structure created by Russia in other European states.
However, the BIS head did not call these countries.
As we reported Russian hackers piggy-backed on an Iranian cyber-espionage operation to attack government and industry organizations in dozens of countries while masquerading as attackers from the Islamic Republic.
Besides, Russian hackers downloaded to the online store's harmful applications that can spy on the owner of a smartphone. We are talking about mobile versions of programs for Android, in particular, Skype, Signal, and Pornhub.
