On May 29m, Microsoft warned international governments that a Russian hacking group known as Nobelium had targeted over 150 organisations across the world.

Amongst the targets were US government agencies. 

Emails were sent to more than 3,000 email accounts according to Microsoft but Russia has denied the claims and said it does not have any knowledge of the cyber attack.
