In a computer application for the US Army found a "Russian trace"

The US command said that the application, approved by the authorities at the official level, could run on embedded Russian computer code "implemented" by the Russian technology company "Pushwoosh", "posing as American".


According to the investigation, at least 1000 people could download it, being freely available in the app stores from Apple and Google. However, since 2019, it has ceased to function, after the law on a new protocol in the field of information technology was approved.

It also turned out that Pushwoosh was involved in creating fake profiles on the social network LinkedIn, ostensibly for two fictional Washington leaders, including. Russia, in turn, denies any accusations of cyberattacks and espionage against itself. The founder of the company told Reuters that he has nothing to do with the Russian authorities at all.

At the same time, the US Army told a news agency that it removed an app containing a "Russian trail" in March of this year.

Note that the United States constantly calls Russia the main threat to its national security along with China. US authorities accuse Moscow and Russian intelligence agencies of allegedly pressuring Pushwoosh to steal the personal data of US citizens. It is noteworthy that in this, as in other high-profile cases of cyber attacks allegedly “used” by Russia against the States, no evidence was provided, and, therefore, they are all based only on some guesses that are the fruit of the sick imagination of the American government.

    It hasn't even been three years...
    It's high time in the news for Americans to tell that in 2019 their services worked perfectly, and all threats were eliminated. Until today, they didn’t write, because it was secret? Or because that case is either doubtful, or a fake today.
    If the author of the note did not specifically add anything, did not lose it, sometimes there are punctures in the presentation of information in the states.
    And maybe there are a lot of them.

    Do not blame yourself and the stupidity of your officials. Then the American courts, huge fines and hundreds of years of imprisonment will immediately begin to work. And you can not only blame everything on Russia for free, but also get additional money from American taxpayers to strengthen cyber defense.

    Oh, this Russian trace ... Where else will they see it? The West sees a bear with vodka and a balalaika everywhere. Looks afraid! yes

      Leshak hiYes, they are not afraid. You just need an image of the enemy, but who to appoint? China will not turn out to be too tightly intertwined in economic terms, now you have to tear with meat, we decided to wait. North Korea and Iran are rather weak as a global adversary, so Russia remains.

    Well, another stuffing for fools, a hacker is a hacker because you can’t find the ends of it, and if it’s ours, then it’s just children playing around, or they specially glued the label

    Gee. They have 70% of programmers - Indians, the rest - Russians. It would be surprising if they found an American trace on any software

    Maybe 1000 people. Perhaps the application used. Maybe it was a Russian app that we thought was American. Perhaps in 2019 we neutralized this application.
    It's time to report it. In November 2022.

    It's progressive paranoia. "freely available in the app stores from Apple and Google", any application requires access to all data before installation. Installed the flashlight application, also required access to all my data. Flashlight Carl!!! And they still, everything on KGB sin, miserable. laughing
