British Prime Minister Theresa May is facing a huge public backlash after bombing Syria without the backing of Parliament

The US and Britain warned on Monday of a Russian government-sponsored cyber attack against internet network infrastructure around the world.

Washington and London issued a joint alert saying the campaign by Russian government-backed hackers was meant to advance spying, intellectual property theft and other "malicious" activities and could be escalated to launch offensive attacks.

United Kingdom government sources have confirmed a Pentagon analysis that showed a 20-fold increase in Russian-sourced "disinformation" being spread online since the cruise missile attacks on Syria in the early hours of Saturday, which has raised concerns that a campaign of cyber attacks by the Russia could follow, according to The Telegraph.

The Kremlin did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Maas listed a series of what he called problematic actions by Moscow, including the lack of progress in implementing a ceasefire in eastern Ukraine, a poison gas attack in Britain, Moscow's support of the Syrian government, Russia's efforts to influence Western elections, and the cyber attack.

"Much of this advice is around following good basic practices around network configuration and patching", he said, adding that because the Russian cyber attack capability is a global problem, the advice issued by the United Kingdom and USA is also relevant to other countries.

Security officials in the UK, US and Australia have accused Russian Federation of hacking into machines and using them as part of an espionage campaign against the West since 2015.

But a Syrian government official said it is "fully ready" to co-operate with the OCPW that's in Syria to investigate the alleged chemical attack that triggered US-led air strikes. They did not identify any victims or provide details on the impact of the attacks.

Relations between Russia and Britain were already on edge after Prime Minister Theresa May blamed Moscow for the March 4 nerve agent poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the city of Salisbury.

The Kremlin said on Tuesday it did not understand the basis for British and USA allegations that Russian Federation was conducting a global cyber espionage campaign.

They have issued a warning to Government bodies, large companies and "critical".

The FBI, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the UK's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) have issued a joint Technical Alert about malicious cyber activity conducted by the Russian Government.

U.S. and British officials warned that infected routers could be used to launch future offensive cyber operations.
