The United States' director of national intelligence issued a "red alert" warning on a dangerous new level of cyber-warfare during a Washington think tank conference. He also spoke of Russia as one of the "worst offenders" ahead of US President Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland. Dan Coats addressed the Hudson Institute last Friday, commenting: "Today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack." He compared the "warning signs" to the same ones "ignored" ahead of the September 11 terrorist attacks.

"It was in the months prior to September 2001 when, according to then-CIA Director George Tenet, the system is blinking red. And here we are nearly two decades later, and I'm here to say, the warning lights are blinking red again," Coats said.
