Germany Detects New Russian Cyber-Attack

German security officials have detected a fresh cyber-attack on the email accounts of German lawmakers, the military and several German embassies by the Russian hacker group Snake belived to be affilited with the FSB intelligence agancy.

The news magazine Der Spiegel, citing security sources, said the latest cyber-attack was detected on Nov. 14 but it was not yet clear if any data had been stolen.

It quoted the BfV domestic intelligence agency as saying: "The BfV, in the framework of investigating the cyber campaign 'Snake', has detected new attacks. The victims are primarily in the government and political realm."

In April, BfV said there was a "high likelihood" that the Russian government was behind a cyber-attack on German computer networks that was discovered in December 2017 that was also linked to the hacker group Snake.

German officials have also said Russia was behind an earlier cyber-attack on the German lower house of parliament in 2015. Russia has repeatedly denied that it is involved in cyber-attacks on German institutions.
