Washington, INS. Cybercriminals in the US have made the situation serious by targeting important locations through ransomware. FBI Director Christopher Wray has said that cybercrimes in the country are facing challenges like the 9/11 attacks.
Now considering cyber crimes as serious terrorist incidents, preparations are being made to combat them. Christopher Wray told the Wall Street General that the FBI’s investigation has uncovered a hundred types of ransomware so far. From which a conspiracy was hatched to destroy every region of America.
Many of these were directly related to Russia. Last week, President Joe Biden told a White House press briefing that his administration was studying closely how Russia would respond to the ransomware attack. It should be known that not only government institutions but also private sector companies are becoming victims of cyber attacks in America. Ransomware attacks are being done to spy on the government and to paralyze the system.
These cyber-attacks in the private sector are being carried out by organized gangs sitting in Russia and China. Ransom is being demanded by them after these attacks. President Joe Biden has signed an order recently, in which strict provisions are being made considering cyber attacks as serious terrorist acts. After this order, the system of security agencies from identifying cybercriminals to stopping them is being strengthened further. Along with this, retaliatory action will also be taken.
What was the 9/11 attack in America?
