Biden said about the Russian attack on the American pipeline




The Russian government did not launch an attack on the American pipeline operator Colonial Pipeline, but it was definitely done by the Russians. This was stated by US President Joe Biden at a speech at the White House.





“We do not believe that the Russian government was involved in the attack, but we have good reasons to believe that the perpetrators of the attack live in Russia,” the US leader said.

It is also noted that the US government communicates with representatives from Russia, together they develop measures against hackers.

In turn, the White House itself later said that the Russian Federation is responsible for this event. This statement was made by the press secretary of US President Jen Psaki.

In early May, a group of hackers attacked the largest pipeline operator in the United States, the Colonial Pipeline. The hackers introduced a special ransomware virus into the system, which blocks all systems until it receives the reverse command, which is located in the encryption keys. As a result, the fuel company paid the hackers 5 million US dollars.

Some Americans believe that the cyberattack was committed by the Russian group DarkSide.
