 Part of channel(s): Ukraine (current event)

January 7, 2017 - Fort Russ NewsICT-online.ru
A network of thousands of intelligent home appliances attacked the sites of Russian financial institutions. In particular, the attack was carried out by toasters, Internet cameras, coffee makers and communications equipment. In total, the attack could have involved at least half a million devices, stated a report by "Kaspersky Lab" - a leading Russian and global cyber security firm.

Likely the attack was planned by hackers outside of Russia, according to "Kaspersky Lab". The identity of the hacker, was not released. The hacker has previously announced the intention to strike at Russian financial institutions, explaining the intention by the fact that, in his opinion, Russian hackers actively intervened in U.S. presidential election.

  • The online pranks from some 20 years ago are now a threat in Russia. In West a loud "I love gay porn!" broadcast from speakers may be harmless but in Russia a matter of life and death.

  • Washington has put Beijing into a political trap
    Analytics

    USA exacerbate relations with China through a variety of indirect provocation with the participation of its neighbors. As a result, Beijing was in a nasty trap: his measured response starts to look "weak" in the eyes of the world, and "strong" – and the more forceful the reaction will be obviously excessive and inadequate. Will the leadership of China find a way out of the trap placed?
