France suspects Russia behind the 24000 Cyber Attacks!

Cyber Attack fear has gripped the nation of France to such an extent that it is planning to increase the number of its government-funded team of Cyber Warriors from 250 to 2,600 till 2019.

France Television Channel TV5 Monde reported the above fact yesterday and also concluded that Russia was emerging as a prime suspect behind the 24000 cyber attacks launched on France Defense Ministry last year.

Jean-Yves Le Drain, the Director of French Intelligence has concurred with the reports being published in the media and added that if Russia proved successful in influencing the US Polls 2016 results, then it could also probably target the French Elections.

Jean-Yves said that his sources which have confirmed proof that Kremlin hacked the database of TV5 Monde in 2015 is planning terribly to take down the database of its nation’s Defense Ministry early this year.

The relationship between France and Russia soured after 2014 after Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine and played an active role in Syrian Conflicts.

France feels that its general elections which are to be held in two rounds i.e in April and May might also be influenced by the said nation’s cyber crooks due to political vendetta.

“When Russia could influence the elections of Western Countries, then it could also meddle with our polls”, said Jean-Yves.

Our Cyber Security Insiders sources confirmed that France’s critical public infrastructure related to Telecommunication, power, water, transport and media networks were extremely vulnerable to cyber attacks.

For this reason, France has decided to jack up its Cyber Army against Vladimir Putin’s premeditate intentions.

On the other hand, Russia would probably want a France ruler who’s in favor of its activities propelled against Syria. For this reason, it will definitely try to influence the France Polls in favor of Francois Fillon, who wants to build a new relationship between Paris and Moscow.
