Nato's top bodies will, likely next week, analyse a spate of recent e-mail hacks against Polish politicians, a source at the military bloc's headquarters has told PAP.
Poland's deputy PM and ruling party leader Jarosław Kaczyński on Friday said the recent spate of email hacks against Polish politicians had originated from the territory of Russia, quoting Poland's and its allies' special services.
Poland’s politicians and political groups could soon face a “wide-ranging” and organised disinformation campaign, the government spokesman has warned.
The Polish prime minister has called for a closed-door parliamentary session to discuss a number of cyber-attacks on Polish government officials, including his own chief of staff, government spokesperson Piotr Mueller said on Tuesday.
Russia has expelled three Polish diplomats in a tit-for-tat move taken just hours after the Polish Foreign Ministry announced that three Russians from Moscow’s Warsaw embassy were to be expelled in relation to Russian cyber-attacks carried out on the United States.
Polish computer game maker CD Projekt, the company behind the blockbuster The Witcher game, has been hacked by attackers who managed to access its internal network, the company said on Twitter.
The Polish Foreign Ministry in a Thursday communique supported the statements made by the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom in which the three countries attribute the responsibility for a wave of cyberattacks to Russian military intelligence GRU.
The attacks, which targeted several national and regional news sites, involved hackers posting articles ridiculing the effectiveness and preparedness of Polish soldiers and equipment.
