Media: the United States will soon make a cyber attack on Russia


In the near future, the United States plans to carry out a massive hacker attack on Russian computer systems in response to cyberattacks attributed to Russians through SolarWinds software.


According to the New York Times, these attacks will not be pronounced, but the Russian authorities, as well as the army and intelligence services, will learn about them. These actions will be accompanied by sanctions against the Russian Federation.

US President Joseph Biden signed a series of decrees aimed at ensuring computer security and strengthening the protection of computer systems of government agencies in order to avoid future consequences from attacks by foreign hackers.

The Kremlin is behind the SolarWinds attacks, according to United States intelligence agencies. In March last year, cyber fraudsters launched a virus in the Orion update, which was later downloaded by a large number of the firm's customers, as well as about four hundred large US enterprises.

According to Vladimir Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov, Russia has nothing to do with such hacker manifestations, and attacks against Moscow fit into the general outline of Washington's anti-Russian and Russophobic rhetoric.

    Well, if ours would bend down, with the prospect of creating damage, then they would bend the Fed and open the Fort Knox video recording system, the effect would be much more interesting.

    There are no sudden cyberattacks. First you need to introduce worms, create backdoors, and generally search for vulnerabilities long and hard. If this is all done with a directive and under the leadership of the state, then this is a declaration of war.
    If we take into account that civil and military networks differ from each other not only in architecture and encryption methods, then the conclusion comes out: they want / pretend that they want to spoil in the civil / financial sector, or maybe they just take it out of fear.
