The US has charged four Russians government employees with cyber-attacks on the global energy sector.
They are accused of targeting hundreds of companies and organisations in around 135 countries between 2012-2018.
Their activities are said to have caused two separate emergency shutdowns at one facility in Saudi Arabia.
The conspiracy then allegedly attempted to hack the computers of a company that managed similar critical infrastructure entities in the US.
Some of the individuals are linked by the US indictment to the FSB, Russia’s security service.
The UK has also sanctioned a Russian defence organisation said to be linked to the attack.
