How the UK and UAE were hacked

How the US and UK were hacked by cyber-criminals on the eve of the Brexit vote has revealed how a small group of officials within the UK government tried to stop the EU’s cyber-security agency, Europol, from investigating a number of suspected cyber-attacks against the country’s critical infrastructure, according to a report published on Wednesday.

According to a copy of a secret report obtained by the UK-based website The Intercept, which was published on the day of the UK’s Brexit vote, the US embassy in London tried to pressure the UK Government on December 6 to stop investigating cyber-crimes by a group of foreign nationals, including members of the Foreign Office’s cybercrime taskforce, who were allegedly linked to cybercrime rings operating in Britain and elsewhere in the EU.

The report, written by the International Trade Center (ITC), a London-based international trade centre, claims that the ITC, which monitors trade in the European Union, “took direct steps to intervene on behalf of the foreign nationals,” but that this did not stop the US-led group from continuing to investigate the UK.

“Our view is that they [the US] are not trying to investigate this at all,” said ITC director and senior director Stephen O’Rourke.

“The UK has a very difficult relationship with the US, and it is important for the UK to not be dragged into the US investigation.”

The UK’s cyber threat is not the only issue the report raises, however.

It also claims that officials within Europol failed to disclose their involvement in the probe to the European Parliament, which oversees the European Commission, until it was too late.

The UK is the third country to launch an investigation into suspected cybercrimes committed by foreign nationals after the US announced it was launching its own probe into the matter.

In response to the leaked report, EU Parliament President Martin Schulz told The Associated Press on Thursday that the EU is investigating whether the UK was part of a conspiracy to disrupt the Brexit process, which has been delayed due to the UK voting to leave the bloc.

“There are no facts or evidence to suggest that the UK engaged in cybercracking against the EU, and the investigation is ongoing,” Schulz said.

“We are doing the same things that we did before the Brexit referendum, investigating the issue, and we are following the facts.

The EU Parliament was also forced to suspend the release of the report last week following complaints from the US about a lack of transparency in its handling of the cybercrime investigation. “

If we find that there is evidence of this, we will take action against those responsible.”

The EU Parliament was also forced to suspend the release of the report last week following complaints from the US about a lack of transparency in its handling of the cybercrime investigation.

The US Department of Justice on Wednesday launched an investigation to determine whether the leaked documents are legitimate, and whether they have merit.

The leaked report from the ITD reveals how senior officials within EU institutions and in Brussels attempted to thwart a Europol investigation into a suspected cybercrime ring that allegedly operated out of the country.

The report says that “an investigation by Europol into suspected and known cybercrime cases has already been initiated, and has been formally opened by the DG of State [Jeroen Dijsselbloem] and the head of the Office of the DG Cybercrime, to establish whether the investigations are being carried out appropriately.”

It claims that “the US and other member states have not yet received the necessary technical assistance to investigate or to present their cases.”

The ITC report says, however, that the US Embassy in London “has already acted to provide technical assistance, and that the British Government has provided a copy to Europol of the final report of its investigation into the case.”

The UK Government has made no request for assistance from the UK or other member state authorities.

“The report also says that the head, the Secretary of State for Justice, the EU Commissioner for Security Policy and the commissioner of information and communication technology, and Europol’s Director-General have “done everything possible to prevent this from happening.

“However, according in the report, the ITCs involvement with the investigation “did not stop this investigation from continuing, and no UK officials were contacted about the investigation.

“The report adds that there was “no attempt made to inform any UK officials about the investigations and to notify any UK authorities about any investigation of the suspected cybercriminal group.

“Europol was established in 2012 to investigate cybercrime crimes across the bloc, and on Wednesday, the UK announced that it was investigating allegations that it may have participated in a conspiracy that targeted its critical infrastructure.
