US Energy Department Hacked by Russia

Multiple government agencies in the United States of America have experienced a prominent attack. Announcements have been issued by the US Energy Department that confirms they’ve been the most recent agency attacked. It’s not surprising when America is facing its most prominent cyber attack in history. What’s concerning about the US Energy Department being affected is that this branch og government manages nuclear weapons. Statements made by the US Energy Department notify that nuclear arsenals weren’t affected by the cyber attack.

Malicious software originating from likely Russia has been located in largescale corporations & government agencies. Microsoft confirmed on December 17th that they’d located malicious software inside their platforms. Details regarding what that malicious software caused for Microsoft wasn’t detailed. Russia was likely collecting consumer data over months, with confirmations from the “US Treasury & Commerce Department” confirming that this cyberattack was sophisticated, requiring months for hackers to accomplish. It should be clarified that Russia has denied all responsibility revolving around the cyberattack. However, denials are likely falsified. Every cyberattack initiated in recent months has been accomplished by Russia or China, two largescale communist regimes that work diligently towards destabilizing global operations for federal benefits.

Investigators reviewing the extensive cyberattack have noted it’ll take years for America to comprehend the fallout of this nation-wide hack. President Donald Trump has ignored all questioned regarding the cyberattack, believing it’s an issue for upcoming President-Elect Joe Biden. America’s forthcoming president has promised that they’ll deter adversaries by implement prominent tariffs & disrupting national growth. Presidential-Elect Joe Biden emphasised that America’s critical infrastructures being attacked cannot be permitted, that the private & federal sectors have now been comprised. Biden promises a co-ordinated attack will be returned towards China or Russia, with one of the two likely at fault.

Analysts believe that those responsible originate from China, with nation-wide hacks beginning in March 2020. It means hackers began attacking the United States when Covid-19 became an international attack. Most still suspect China of creating Covid-19 in laboratory environments. This hack leans harder towards those allegations being accurate.
