Microsoft: Russia Launched 58% of State-Backed Cyber Attacks (Tim Balk, New York Daily News, Government Technology)

Russia’s relentless hacking efforts accounted for 58% of all state-sponsored cyber attacks observed by Microsoft over the past year, the tech giant said Thursday, and the country appears to have gotten significantly more efficient in its digital assault.

Microsoft said that the top three foreign targets of Russian state actors were the U.S., Ukraine and Britain, and that the hackers saw their success rate on hacks climbed from 21% to 32% year-over-year. The company also said it observed a newly intense Russian focus on government agencies, particularly those entwined with foreign policy.
