MUNICH, February 19. /TASS/. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) has been unable to identify the perpetrators of the recent cyber attacks against it, OSCE Secretary General, Lamberto Zannier, told TASS on Saturday.
"We saw the traces of this attack. We know that the system, E-mail system, was penetrated. We could not from what we found, we could not trace the origin of the attack. So, we are putting in place better protection, but we are unable to point the finger in any direction based on what we see."
According to Zannier, the OSCE has developed a number of confidence-building measures in this area. He noted though they are not used yet. "I think it would be good to start using them in relation to all these allegations of attacks and start looking at how the states are dealing with them, the reaction of individual states in relation to this and then how we can work together to minimize the impact and to address problems connected with these attacks. So, there is quite a bit that can be done, if there is a political will to do it," he said.
On December 28 it was reported that in OSCE computers became a target of a cyber attack in early November. It is unclear who was behind it.
In January, the German Office for the Protection of the Constitution, which performs counterintelligence functions, said that Russian hackers could be behind the attack against OSCE computers.
