Russia and China have each warned the United States that the offensive cyber-ops it ran to support Ukraine were acts of aggression that invite reprisal.
The US has acknowledged it assisted Ukraine to shore up its cyber defences, conducted information operations, and took offensive actions during Russia’s illegal invasion.
While many nations occasionally mention they possess offensive cyber-weapons and won’t be afraid to use them, admissions they’ve been used are rare. US Cyber Command chief General Paul Nakasone’s public remarks to that effect were therefore unusual.
