The White House accused the Russian Federation and the People's Republic of China of cyber attacks on political and economic grounds

Russia and a number of other states are conducting cyber attacks on Western countries for political, economic and other reasons, and the goals of these countries may periodically change, leading TASS White House statement.




On Wednesday, the US administration published a report in which it named hacker groups from the Russian Federation, the People's Republic of China, Iran and the DPRK as the main cyber threat.

These groups are well funded and often participate in complex, targeted attacks. National states, as a rule, are guided by political, economic, technological and military agendas, they have many goals that can differ in different periods of time,
the report says, which was prepared using information from the national intelligence service.

The document states that these countries may also engage in "industrial espionage" and extortion of funds.

If they have a need for financial assets, they are able to launch attacks demanding ransom and electronic theft of funds,
authors believe.

They recalled the case of the Russian company Kaspersky Lab, whose products have recently been banned for use in US government networks, since, in the opinion of the authorities, they could harm national security.

This example well demonstrates the need to reduce dependence on foreign cybersecurity tools,
The document says.

        Let the United States accuse the Russian people of creating a Russian state and end there!
        Everyone understands that Russia saves the world from the absolute dictatorship of the United States. And the friends of amers will turn into slaves in case (God forbid) the destruction of the Russian Federation. American corporations will reign all over the world. And slave labor will be used ... Everyone will work for food!

          Our IT specialists, and tsuzy, have such a mess, it’s hard to imagine.
          As I go to them, I am always amazed. how can this work?
          So to find the ends there, it’s really a “shelf” over the areas.
          Mozh and there is someone with individually expressed features, but in the sum such a brothel !!!
          The principle is simple, it worked and okay.

    We had a virus in the summer ... I then looked at it ... The programmers have a handwriting ... as with the letter ... I won’t give a tooth, but it seems they wrote in India ... Or those who studied there ... By the way, In the states, now every fourth programmer from India ... When writing programs, tails form ... these are the areas that you don’t need then ... They can be closed in different ways ... ours usually just erase ... Indians lazy people just block them ...

    And our Western and Middle Eastern partners carry out cyber attacks on us exclusively from altruism and philanthropy.
