Who found sedition in the new presidential cyber security decree?

40
President Putin recently signed a decree on the creation of a state system for detecting, preventing and eliminating the consequences of computer attacks on information resources of the Russian Federation. Now all the tasks of creating a quality system that raises the level of so-called cyber security, forecasting the situation in this area, preventing attacks and finding those responsible for such attacks will be performed by employees of the Federal Security Service.


The cybersecurity situation has been discussed for a long time. However, it was recently that increased attention began to be paid to her. This is due, among other things, to the identification of a grandiose intercontinental hacker network, which acted with the aim of obtaining information of a very different nature, using Internet technologies. Hackers, according to the specialists of anti-virus laboratories (including the specialists of the Kaspersky Lab), were interested in literally everything: from text files in txt format to news tapes. The presence of active actions on the part of an international team of hackers was established with the help of special technologies, which recorded not only the presence of the most malicious program code, which often "climbed" into the computers of diplomatic departments, military organizations, research centers, but also involvement in the creation of an advanced virus of Russian and Chinese hackers. Specialists from anti-virus laboratories got on the "Russian trail" after they found sets of Latin letters in the code, which were words from the Russian language.

As an example, Kaspersky Lab gives such variations as Zakladka and PROGA. The fact that these terms in the code appeared purely by chance, or that these words were introduced specifically for the appearance of suspicion about Russian programmers, the laboratory specialists do not believe. In addition to the “Russian trace”, a trace from Germany was also found. Several iP-addresses from which all this most complicated system was coordinated were located in the territory of the Federal Republic of Germany. After identifying the actions of the hacker network, it turned out that the attacks were aimed at different countries of the world: from Europe and Russia to the countries of Southeast Asia. There is no definitive answer to the question of why exactly hackers needed to collect information on such a scale. There is an opinion that subsequently obtained data can be used both for political and economic purposes: from banal cyber theft to whipping up the political situation in various countries of the world. For the viral network, they quickly found the name - “Red October” - with an obvious touch in the style of a Hollywood show.

The appearance in the media of materials that the global cyber attack was revealed, but its organizers and performers remained undetected, provides food for thought about the vulnerability of not only the personal information of each Internet user, but also the vulnerability of information that represents the basis of the security of the whole state. Obviously, if the security of network data of a single person using the Internet, for example, for exchanging emails or viewing fresh news, should be taken care of by private structures (the same anti-virus services, providers and other similar companies that provide certain Internet services), then here it’s somewhat strange to trust private firms to the security of the entire state. It can be said with full responsibility that today, among all more or less developed countries of the world, there is not a single state that would use the services of “private owners” to restore order in the field of security, including in the field of cybersecurity. That is why the president instructs the FSB to carry out all work aimed at improving the security system from network attacks on Russian Internet resources (for example, on the network resources of the Government of the Russian Federation, the Kremlin, diplomatic missions of the Russian Federation in foreign countries).

And if someone believes that hackers are not interested in sites that belong to the Russian authorities, these people are wrong. Only in the last month, sites that are the basis for displaying information by the president, the prime minister, individual ministers, have committed several hundred or even thousands of attacks. Some attacks reach their goals, and the sites mentioned can collapse overnight.

So it was, in particular, with the presidential site, when immediately after the inauguration of Vladimir Putin, the site was attacked by an international group of hackers and within an hour with a small access to this resource was completely blocked. Then the hackers said that their attack on the website of the president of the country is nothing but support for the opposition march in Moscow. And if then none of the hackers could be identified, then the case of a Siberian hacker who hacked the same presidential site became iconic. History A burglary occurred on 9 last May, when a resident of Krasnoyarsk also decided to support one of the opposition marches in a very peculiar way: using a virus program to hack kremlin.ru. The location of the "joker" was established, after which the hacker was detained. The court convicted under Article 273 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Creation, distribution or use of computer programs or other computer information that are intended for unauthorized destruction, blocking, modification, copying computer information or neutralizing computer information protection tools”. As a result, the hacker was convicted of imprisonment 4.

Naturally, the overly democratized brotherhood then declared that the sentence was barbaric, and that the thirty-year-old man had become "another victim of political repression." However, the same people deigned to express themselves quite differently with respect to other hackers who, several days later, launched attacks on websites, as they say, liberal media: Echo of Moscow and Kommersant, for example. Then the hackers who "brought down" these sites were immediately accused of collaborating with the FSB and almost personally with Putin. One of the hackers was found in the capital, the other in the Far East. Both received convictions. But even this did not convince "demokratizirovannyh" that the hacker attack is a hacker attack. It can come from where it was not expected and be directed to the resource that the hacker or the customer chooses as the target. As a result, it remained that the convicted for cybercrime against the website of the Russian president was a “political prisoner”, and everyone else worked specifically to divert his eyes, because they are “real FSB wolves” ... A classic opposition song to which Russia began to get used to.

So this time, as soon as Vladimir Putin endowed the FSB with special powers to create a developed cybersecurity system, there were heard cries from the opposition camp that supposedly an attempt to crush freedom of speech, to step on the throat of the “free” press and everything. At the same time, the question immediately arises: how is the development of a security system in the cyberspace generally related to the infringement of the freedom of speech? Or only Russia is engaged in such cases? Are there really no special services in the United States or in Europe that actively monitor the protection of not only real borders of states from external attacks, but also borders in the Internet environment? Yes, in the same US, this system has been working for quite a long time and allows for a year, let's say, to repel hundreds of thousands of attacks both from the outside and from internal ill-wishers. Only in the United States did it not occur to anyone to call the creation of a multilevel cyber security system an attempt to suppress the press and interfere in the affairs of the “fourth estate”.

Our situation is different. It seems that the main factor in the fact that opposition publications have raised a lot of hype about the release of a new presidential decree is not so much the decree itself as the word "FSB". This abbreviation for a certain category of people (both in Russia and abroad) has a truly magical property. As soon as these people hear the "FSB", so it begins to itch in different places. Apparently, it is still itching, and then the document has already been called the next manifestation of bureaucracy and an attempt to usurp power from the special services.

Interestingly, what about the opposition leaders actually believe that cybersecurity is a frivolous phenomenon, and that our segment of the Internet is clean and immaculate, such that hackers outlaw its kindness sincerely? .. Obviously, they don’t consider. They just do not miss the opportunity to once again cling to the decision of the authorities, declaring it to be either anti-national or destructive. They have such a job. But the FSB has another one ...

    You don’t have to be very smart to understand one common truth - the United States stands behind all cyber attacks. Recently, it was announced by the representatives of the US government, in particular, the Minister of Defense Panetta, that the United States has created a special unit to counter cyber attacks. the unit was created a long time ago, it was simply officially announced now. Nobody will convince me that a group of people or enthusiasts is behind cyber attacks. This work is carried out purposefully and methodically. Plus, everything needs huge environments Twa, and it is only by gosudarstvu.Tak that the creation of similar units in Russia is a major deterrent and countering cyber attacks, not only the United States but also to other potential enemies.

    And if someone believes that hackers are not at all interested in sites that belong to the Russian highest authorities,

    Nobody thinks so, everyone is very interested in what they are doing there?

    Now about Kaspersky, well done keep it up

    An online version of a popular computer magazine in the United States has published a list of the 15 most dangerous people in the world. Eugene Kaspersky, the founder of Kaspersky Lab, which specializes in the production of security software, is in the eighth line of the rating.

    The editors of the publication indicated that Kaspersky was involved in the disclosure of US cyber attacks against Iran’s nuclear program. The magazine suspects the businessman of collaborating with the FSB and his company’s employees of conducting special trainings for agency agents. According to the magazine’s ranking, the most dangerous people in the world should also include Kassem Soleimani, commander of the special forces of Iran, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad,

      Sharia patrols appear in London
      The Shariah patrols are attended by the most ardent supporters of the observance of Islamic traditions even abroad. The Sunday Times reported this with reference to a statement by Scotland Yard.

      Dressed in black sweatshirts with hoods covering their faces, radical Islamic youths go out to patrol predominantly distant districts of London from dusk. Acting as a group, they, in their own words, “protect Muslim territory from the inappropriate behavior” of other Londoners. The category of unacceptable actions includes drinking alcohol, too defiant clothes or just outdoor advertising.
      Subsequently, the video of their actions, the participants of the "patrols" are posted on the Internet. These videos show a group of young people snatching a can of beer from the hands of a frightened British teenager, after which it flies on the asphalt. In a similar video that has already been deleted from Youtube, the same activists literally force a man to pour the contents of his can. “This is a Muslim territory, which means alcohol is prohibited here,” they say. “You cannot dress like that in an area where there is a mosque,” ​​sounds in relation to a girl in a miniskirt in another video. In addition, patrolmen also paste stickers with the symbols of their own group and paint black on their advertisement for clothing that is too frank in their opinion.
      Increased complaints of intimidation by such activists forced the local authorities to strengthen their police presence, primarily in east London, where immigrants arriving in England historically settled in the port.


      This awaits us in the very near future .......

Kaspersky is a citizen of Russia and cooperates with the Russian special services in the field of protecting the interests of the state. And is it illegal for them to cooperate with the CIA or the FBI? Hardly.

        Personally, I suspect the liberals of a complete lack of desire to cooperate with the FSB. And I think that the lack of desire to cooperate with the service protecting the country is a full-fledged basis for expulsion from this country and deprivation of citizenship. Because the one who does not want to cooperate with the state cannot be his citizen ...

    Absolutely any measures aimed at ensuring state security will be declared by our population to be barbaric, anti-popular, anti-democratic, etc. (underline the necessary, write in the missing) As in general, any initiative coming from above. After all, any "sane and handshake" person knows that Putin is the embodiment of Satan, and everything that comes from him is simply awful. The only chance they have to come to power is to organize anarchy. And anarchy can be achieved only through the general rejection of all the initiatives of the authorities. Since it was in 1917. Therefore, they will escalate the situation with the use of all forces and means, using any pretext.

      -EP also collaborated with the State Department (!!!)
      - interrogators steal and kill almost in the open
      - latched holes with huge lateness

        According to Kaspersky Lab estimates, the world is entering an era of "cold cyber war", when countries will be able to fight each other without being bound by existing restrictions on the use of traditional weapons.

    Article +! In today's time, we are increasingly convinced that cyber war is more dangerous! Security of the state is a priority important matter and it is impossible to ignore everything that happens! In this regard, Kaspersky Lab develops software for critical objects of the country. It is difficult to guess which virus will be next, but the authorities have an understanding of this situation. It will not be a big surprise that in the future cybernetic military will be created (well, something like this), and their strength will be comparable to nuclear weapons. The world is rapidly changing and it is necessary to respond to incoming threats quickly and effectively!

    So it looks like a show, too many questions arise. It’s like with the famous StuxNet, they were noisy, groaned, hungry for viruses, played a game - guess who wrote this virus. And that’s all, but this class of software was not written by a loner, this is the work of a group of people, moreover, a pro. Surely they didn’t know what they were doing as a whole, everyone worked on the part. Everything indicates that this is an order of the state, and guess what yourself. Or a number of states. With regard to security, it’s too late to drink borzh, smart electronics have firmly entered our lives, which is embedded in chips in addition to the main functions - a secret. So it is necessary to increase the protection of information storage, somewhere to switch to software and OS of our own design. It is also popular to explain to our officials, and indeed to users in general, that it is impossible to set a password of 111 or 1234. And that it is not necessary to store important documents on a computer connected to the Internet. And to catch hackers, of course, is a necessary thing. But, they are caught and they only become smarter and more cunning.

    Well, let's see what we have with SAFETY and how to protect ourselves ???

    The operating system is the development of foreign companies, even about Linux they say that the CIA took part and financed the development ....
    Software - the majority of developments, a product of TNCs (trans.national corporations)) focused on global players like Google. Microsoft Sun ........ who constantly collect user data (how many scandals we hear in the press)), but then it is hushed up (unlike Pussy Riot))
    Telephone communications are all imports, and telephones, communication antennas and equipment are probably bookmarked (remember Iran, how they found communication chips at the Bushehr nuclear power plant in Siemens equipment))

    Element base - processors, chips, data exchange protocols on the board and on the interfaces. Even in Zelenograd, CNC machines are produced according to these developments ....
    Let's remember the story of the purchase of Israeli drones - One of them got out of the control of the Russian operator and flew around the secret base for the storage of chemical weapons near Novosibirsk NPO Vector transmitted telemetry and brazenly sat down on its territory ... naturally artificial intelligence is not there, - was controlled from abroad ....

    You can’t talk about security anymore ...
    VISA payment systems? MASTERCARD? Gold and foreign exchange reserves of Russia in accounts with US banks. We buy food at 70% abroad, although looking at the shelves of shops you see purely Russian goods 12 percent ....
    Even the names of Russian firms are written in Latin letters from English and are favored by the authorities of their director .... by killing women on Leninsky Prospekt and avoiding punishment, the Ministry of Internal Affairs is losing the record from surveillance cameras ........

      Yes, no, not homeless. And very skillfully etched and fed by the true owners.

      Well, firstly they are taught this, it’s not a secret where ... Well, secondly, for many years they have been rolling their technologies in our space without any harm to themselves ...

    As an example, Kaspersky Lab cites such variations as Zakladka and PROGA. The laboratory experts do not believe that these terms appeared in the code purely by accident, or that such words were introduced specifically to raise suspicions specifically against Russian programmers. In addition to the “Russian trace”, a trace from Germany was also discovered. Several iP-addresses, from which this entire complex system was coordinated, were located in Germany.

    Pts. I respect Russian programmers, hackers, and I think they are the best in the world, but in this case it seems to me that this whole "Red October" was made only by the Chinese.
    The name is Hollywood .. apparently they know about Russia only from the movies))
    + On the Internet the infection map roams. Little by little everywhere, but nothing in China!
    And using a couple of Russian words in transliteration is a cheap way to turn the unraveling this tangle on the wrong path. Any Chinese student who studies in Russian universities in the IT field knows these words. Yes, they are so easy to get, knowing analogues in their own language.
    It seems to me generally speaking frivolous to talk about German IP addresses. No fool will coordinate the attack from servers located on its territory.

      Focker,

      Also inclined that these are Chinese and at the state level.

      The Latin alphabet was used to write the programs, so I suggest the authors of the article consider Latin roots.

    And since when did cooperation with services whose main purpose is the security of the country become illegal?

    This is an old hackneyed trick of dissidents, liberals (you can count their names for a very long time), in general, "the conscience of society," as they modestly consider themselves. If there are no specific counter-arguments, an attempt to discredit the personality of their opponent follows. And since all this rag-tag at the same time, being the sexot of one or another special services, publicly demonstrates publicly indignation and contempt for such cooperation. In order to cut off possible competitors for the leakage of information to counters and cover themselves, they shout about Judas, traitors, etc.

      Yeah. They like to put the label "cooperation with the KGB (FSB)" But many of them, if you dig deep enough, will find contacts with these highly respected services.

    It’s strange for me that it was so easy to take the Red October for public display, because it could be used in their own interests after a thorough study - for example, to supply a probable opponent with high-quality misinformation, or use it to collect information, and one cannot believe that the origin is not established , (Russian trace and German IPs are very primitive.) laughing
    It is also thought that "a system for detecting, preventing and eliminating the consequences of computer attacks ..." is only a small part of cybersecurity. What about proactive and reactive actions? Here in war there is defense and attack ... here in the decree it is only about security (defense).

    There is a version that these viruses are mainly written by competing antivirus software developers. Antivirus = this program = a set of signatures of the type of your alien simplified of course. And if there is no Trojan in this set, unfortunately it is defenseless, and deleting infected files can also be fraught with reinstalling the whole Windows. Casper of course PR, although he eats a lot of RAM slowing down performance.
