Biden under pressure to respond to Russians' claims, hacking still on the rise

After what some are calling the largest ransomware attack in history, Biden’s landed in hot water for his approach to Russia.

A successful ransomware attack on a single company has spread to at least 200 organizations and likely far more, according to cybersecurity firm Huntress Labs. Russian hackers have claimed responsibility for the attack.

At the Geneva convention, Biden gave Putin a list of lines Russian hackers would not be allowed to cross when it came to hacking U.S. infrastructure. The move was widely regarded as questionable at best and dangerous at worst.

Biden wanted to give Russia six months to straighten up — but it looks like Putin’s citizens will now force his hand.
