The US authorities are preparing a response to “Russian hackers” to a large-scale cyberattack, which has recently been subjected to American government agencies and companies. Washington promised that the response would include “a set of tools – visible and invisible.” The Americans did not provide any evidence of the involvement of Russians in hacking.
Jake Sullivan, adviser to the President of the United States, spoke about the reaction to the cyber attack on Monday. He noted that, in particular, we are talking about sanctions.
We are in the process. The answer will include a set of tools – visible and invisible. It won’t be just sanctions, ”Sullivan said on CBS.
Earlier it was reported that some hackers carried out an attack on the United States using programs from SolarWinds. 9 US federal agencies and about a hundred private companies were hit. The US authorities immediately blamed the “Russian hackers”. At the same time, Ann Nyberger, Deputy Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security, admitted to reporters that she does not know who is really behind the cyber attack. She said that until the investigation is completed, the Americans will use the phrase “person, probably of Russian origin.”
