UK on alert for possible Russian cyberthreat, foreign secretary says …

Britain faces a looming threat of possible cyber-attack from Russia, the U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said on Sunday.

Johnson warned during a BBC broadcast on Sunday of the possibility that Russia may retaliate against U.K. sanctions following the Salisbury attack and Western-allied strikes on Syria by targeting power networks or national infrastructure in Britain.

“When you look at what Russia has done, not just in this country, in Salisbury — attacks on TV stations, on the democratic processes, on critical national infrastructure — of course we have to be very cautious indeed,” he said.
