Russia to the cyber-attack United States with the help of its Ransomware gangs

370

We all know that half of the ransomware gangs that are operating in the wild are from Russia or are being financially backed by Kremlin. So, after analyzing the current situation in the cyber landscape, the FBI has concluded that the Putin-led government is all set to the cyber-attack United States pretty soon!

It is going to be a destructive attack and will primarily focus on the critical infrastructure like power and water utilities and that too is going to happen soon, says the FBI in a statement released yesterday.

Meanwhile, the law enforcement agency proudly disclosed that it disrupted the 2021 Iranian digital attack on Boston Children’s Hospital that could have led to the death of several children.

Moscow now has the intention to cut down the supply of arms and finances to Ukraine from the west and so is planning to target the US and UK in the coming weeks as it wants to corner the Zelensky-led nation.

As it is becoming extremely difficult to gain a potential hold on Kyiv, after 100 days of battle, the Vladimir Putin-led nation is now planning to corner the nation with nuclear bombs, to win the war at any cost.

Its first plan is to cut down essential supplies to Ukraine, after which the populace will automatically bow down their heads to its military troops. And that can only be achieved if it blocks the west from waging any kind of interference on the battlefield.

Second, Russia wants to teach a lesson to the west for supporting Ukraine as without the support it would have conquered the nation within 15 days of its invasion.

To do so, it is first planning to take down the digital infrastructure and later launch a devastating war from air, land, and sea. And to purpose its objectives, the nation will never think twice about launching nuclear attacks.

So, it is better if the west takes all necessary measures to strengthen its current cybersecurity posture.
