Washington blames Moscow for cyber attack using Petya virus

41
The White House accused Russia of creating the NotPetya virus, which attacked computers in Ukraine and several other countries in June last year, reports RIA News.




In June, the 2017 Russian Armed Forces launched the most destructive and costly cyber attack in stories. The hacker attack using the NotPetya virus quickly spread throughout the world, causing losses of billions of dollars and causing damage to computers throughout Europe, Asia and America,
said in a statement to the US administration.

The virus is said to have become “part of the Kremlin’s ongoing efforts to destabilize Ukraine and confirms even more clearly Russia's participation in the ongoing conflict.”

This rash cyber attack will be given an international response,
said the White House.

On the eve of involvement in a cyber attack using the NotPetya virus, Moscow blamed the British Foreign Office. However, no evidence was presented.

The Kremlin categorically rejected these accusations, calling them unsubstantiated and groundless.

          Hello Alexander.
          But what, you don’t know what is stopping the dancer? To distract the electorate from their own internal problems, designate an external enemy. The eternal truth.

              This thieving country has succeeded in shifting its problems onto the shoulders of others, and with a "walrus" for their loved ones. So that (IMHO) while the printing press buzzing with tons of green clones will buzz, the "measurement" will be in chocolate, and debtors and vassals in rags. yes

      "They would have come up with something more real and more terrible for the horror stories of their tops."
      There was once a virus that caused a lot of trouble around the world, some people still remember it - Chernobyl (Virus.Win9x.CIH). Although it was written by a student from Taiwan, but something was not heard in those years of accusations against Black Sea diggers, how could it be, the analogies with the name are the same as those of Nepeti. Looks like the Pindocs in 1999 had other, very important concerns, in the form of the bombing of Yugoslavia.

    Russian armed forces began the most destructive and costly cyber attack in history
    How does that sound! The Anglo-Saxon layman in shock - these Russians again. It is felt that their computer companies are about to offer some kind of product that will protect any Anglo-Saxon computer from Russian cyber attacks by 99,9%. Congress and the House of Lords will adopt new sanctions, well, etc.
    This rash cyber attack will be answered internationally
    No one doubted this. The main desire, and the reason can always be found.

      The ESET company said that the spread of malware started in Ukraine through the popular accounting software MEDoc.
      MEDoc itself denies that the spread of the virus may be related to its update files. However Microsoft experts confirm that the first cases of infection began precisely with the installation of the MEDoc update

    And that’s not all, with similar accusations Denmark and Australia have already made ... And we are all in the “dead defense”. So wars DO NOT WIN.

    The Anglo-Saxons are trying to find a pretext for the imposition of new sanctions and to further strengthen the image of universal evil that they create from Russia. All in science: create ONE enemy and blame him for all the troubles, even the most unimaginable.
