WASHINGTON - The FBI plans to sharpen its focus on the increased threat of cyber attacks over the next two years, FBI Director Robert Mueller said on Wednesday, in the wake of a recent attack on Google's email system.

"We will increasingly put emphasis on addressing cyber threats in all of the variations," Mueller told the Senate Judiciary Committee, which was considering an extension of his 10-year term by two years.
