The United States accused the Russian Federation in organizing a hacker attack on industrial control systems

41
The head of US national intelligence, James Clapper, said during a speech before congressmen that Russian hackers had managed to penetrate American industrial management systems working with critical infrastructure facilities, in particular, with electrical grids, the newspaper reported "Sight".




He noted as a result of the actions of unknown hackers, a supply chain of products from at least three firms was threatened. According to Clapper, consumers downloaded malware directly from the companies' websites along with a licensed software update.

In addition, Klapper noted that a “cyber war command” and a hacker special unit had been created in Russia, which was preparing for a future war in cyberspace.

In addition to the Russian Federation, Klapper mentioned Iran, China and North Korea, stressing that these states are capable of conducting serious cyber attacks and espionage.

It is worth recalling that on July 29, the Pentagon had to disable the internal email network due to “suspicious activity. Later, the media suggested that the attack on the network was organized by Russian hackers.

    as a result of actions unknown hackers

    It’s strange. It turns out that if the unknown, then necessarily a Russian. The Americans, the words "Russia", "Russian" became a household word and the embodiment of the threat of Western democracy.

        You can continue this list for a long time. All countries where mathematics and computer science are at least slightly developed can bring up good hackers. But as always, the Russians are to blame, well, or in the worst case, the bad Asians.

      This is a US response. They were offended that Russian specialists repulsed their attack on the site during the election. In order not to inflate, we went on the attack with counter accusations.

          It is not clear if the United States knows that the Internet is vulnerable, why should it use it when transmitting classified information and sensitive data? Isn't it easier for the intelligence and the Ministry of Defense to create a closed network that is in no way connected to the Internet?

    There are two warrants.
    1. Do American companies use Russian software?
    2. Russian hackers quickly monitor software updates on American sites and replace it with their version with an embedded malicious code.
    I don’t know which version is dumber.

    Even so, then ... the thing is necessary. In the event of a mess, completely cutting down what is left of the Amer industry by pressing a few buttons is a good thing.
