美英有关部门还指控该组织渗透进了参与新冠肺炎疫苗研发的相关组织。

路透社援引知情人士的话报道称,疑似为俄罗斯政府工作的黑客一直在监控美国财政部的电子邮件往来,他们也监控美国一个负责制定互联网及电信政策的政府机构的电子邮件。

“美国政府已知晓相关报道,正在采取一切必要措施,查找可能与之有关的问题并全力做出补救,”国家安全委员会发言人约翰•尤里奥特在一份声明中表示。

美国商务部发言人证实,“我们某一部门”确实遭到了入侵,路透社确认系国家电信和信息管理局。据路透社报道,因为事态严重,美国国家安全委员会周六在白宫召开了会议。

据路透社报道,针对美国政府的网络攻击是一系列黑客攻击的一部分,还包括最近针对网络安全公司火眼公司(FireEye)的攻击,黑客窃取了用于查找公司客户计算机网络漏洞的敏感工具。《华盛顿邮报》报道称,俄罗斯黑客组织安逸熊(Cozy Bear,又称APT 29)是此次行动的幕后黑手。早在2015年,民主党全国委员会就曾遭到该黑客组织的攻击。今年7月,美国和英国有关部门还指控该组织渗透进了参与新冠肺炎疫苗研发的相关组织。

“针对最近发现的政府网络问题,我们正在和合作伙伴开展密切合作。”美国国土安全部下属网络安全和基础设施安全局(CISA)的一名发言人表示,“CISA正在向受影响的部门提供技术援助,帮助它们查明并减少潜在危害。”

美国财政部未对此作出即时回应。(财富中文网)

Hackers suspected to be working for the Russian government have been monitoring emails at the U.S. Treasury Department and a U.S. agency responsible for deciding policy around the internet and telecommunications, Reuters reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

“The United States government is aware of these reports and we are taking all necessary steps to identify and remedy any possible issues related to this situation,” John Ullyot, a spokesman for the National Security Council, said in a statement.

A Commerce Department spokesperson confirmed there was a breach “in one of our bureaus,” which Reuters identified as the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. The attacks were so concerning that the National Security Council met at the White House Saturday, Reuters reported.

The cyber-attacks against the U.S. government were part of a broader campaign that involved the recent hack of cybersecurity company FireEye, in which sensitive tools were stolen that are used to find vulnerabilities in clients’ computer networks, according to Reuters. The Washington Post reported that the Russian hacking group known as Cozy Bear, or APT 29, was behind the campaign. That is the same hacking group that was behind the cyber-attacks on the Democratic National Committee going back to 2015. It was also accused by U.S. and U.K. authorities in July of infiltrating organizations involved in developing a Covid-19 vaccine.

“We have been working closely with our agency partners regarding recently discovered activity on government networks,” said a spokesperson for the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, or CISA, part of the Department of Homeland Security. “CISA is providing technical assistance to affected entities as they work to identify and mitigate any potential compromises.”

The Treasury had no immediate response to questions.
