The U.K., U.S., and Canada are warning that Russia cyber attackers are targeting organizations researching coronavirus vaccines. 

A bulletin published by the officials on Thursday warned about the group associated with Russian intelligence called APT29—and also known as 'Cozy Bear.'

“We condemn these despicable attacks against those doing vital work to combat the coronavirus pandemic. Working with our allies, the NCSC is committed to protecting our most critical assets and our top priority at this time is to protect the health sector," said Paul Chichester, director of Operations for Britain's National Cyber Security Centre. “Working with our allies, the NCSC is committed to protecting our most critical assets and our top priority at this time is to protect the health sector."

"It is completely unacceptable that the Russian Intelligence Services are targeting those working to combat the coronavirus pandemic. While others pursue their selfish interests with reckless behavior, the UK and its allies are getting on with the hard work of finding a vaccine and protecting global health," said Britain's Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab.

"The UK will continue to counter those conducting such cyber attacks, and work with our allies to hold perpetrators to account," he added.
