Russia criticizes Canada for Cyber Attacks on Georgia

Russia has sharply criticized Canada for blaming Moscow for launching Cyber Attacks on Georgia in 2019. The word comes just after the United States allegedly blamed Kremlin last week for launching cyberattacks on the websites of Georgia and Ottawa joining the blame game.


Cybersecurity Insiders readers have to notify a fact over here that more than 2K public and private websites faced disruption on October 28th, 2020 due to a cyber-attack allegedly launched by Kremlin and this includes the disruption of IT infrastructure those belonging to Imedi and Maestro.


In a statement released last week, the Canadian Foreign Ministry was in voice with its allies over Russia’s indulgence in cyberattacks targeting Georgia. The statement added that the Russian General Staff of the Armed Forces was involved in the attack.


And this seems to have irked Moscow who claims no proof of the allegations on its indulgence in the digital breach.


Meanwhile, a fresh statement issued by the United States says that the attack was carried out by a Sandworm aka 74455 unit belonging to the Russian General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU).


Note– Any cyberattack on the west points fingers at either Russia or China. And from the past two years, Iran and North Korea have joined the list. The fact is that the countries who allege that Russia and China are involved allege that they have evidence to prove that the nations are guilty. But never reveal the evidence to the public.
