The country of Russia has been forced to deny reports that state hackers broke into the Iranian Security Service’s hacking tools to launch worldwide attacks. It was speculated that Russian threat group Turla were behind the hijacked tools, but a spokesman for Russia said the claims were “an attempt to drive a wedge between Russia and Iran”. The original reports were uncovered by US and UK intelligence agencies, suggesting the Russians piggybacked on an Iranian hacking group to target others.
