Denmark has accused Russia of hacking into the emails accounts of the nation’s defense ministry.
A Sunday report published by the Centre for Cyber Security claimed that a group of pro-Kremlin hackers had infiltrated into the emails of defense ministry employees in 2015 and 2016, Danish news agency Ritzau reported Monday.
"This is part of a continuing war from the Russian side in this field, where we are seeing a very aggressive Russia," Defence Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen told Ritzau.
"The hacked emails don't contain military secrets, but it is of course serious," Frederiksen said.
The report identified the hacker group as APT28, also known as Pawn Storm, Sofacy and Fancy Bears, which has links to the Russian government and security services and has previously been named by the FBI and US Homeland Security as being behind "malicious cyber activity" against US government bodies, the report said.
The group is also believed to be behind other high-profile cyber attacks.
