Russia gets ready for large–scale cyber attacks. This is mentioned in the joint statement by the U.S. and British government.

The cyber security experts found out that lately, Russian hackers have been using network tools to spy or plan future hacker attacks. Australian network users also reported numerous threats to their companies; last year, their servers succumbed to a malicious software.

The Pentagon says that over the past 24 hours, the Russian trolls’ activity in the U.S. increased by 2,000 percent, which could be the sign of the global campaign for misinformation led by the Kremlin.
