NATO is considering the use of military force against enemies who launch cyber attacks on its member states.The move follows a series of Russian-linked hacking against Nato members and warnings from intelligence services of the growing threat from China.A team of Nato experts led by Madeleine Albright, the former US secretary of state, has warned that the next attack on a Nato country “may well come down a fibre-optic cable”.A report by Albright’s group said that a cyber attack on the critical infrastructure of a Nato country could equate to an armed attack, justifying retaliation.
