UK claims Russia planned cyber attack for Tokyo Olympics

Disclosing a joint operation with the United States  intelligence, United Kingdom National Cyber Security Centre has revealed that Russian military intelligence services were planning a cyber attack on the Olympics and Paralympics hosted by Japan.

According to the Guardian, the aim was to disrupt the event after many of the Russian competitors had been disqualified over doping offences. Russia was banned in December 2019 from all world sporting events by the Worldwide Anti Doping Agency calling as Wada, including the summer Olympics.

The report found that the Russian cyber reconnaissance work covering the Olympic Games organizers, logistics services and sponsors was already in motion before the Olympics was postponed due to Coronavirus(COVID-19).

The Tokyo Games’ organising committee said there was “no significant impact observed” from possible cyber attacks on its operations.

“Tokyo 2020 sees cyber security as an important aspect of hosting the Games, and the Tokyo 2020 organising committee has been taking a range of measures and making thorough preparations,” it said in an emailed statement to the Guardian.
