Hacker attacks on the website of the President of Russia
As the Press Secretary of the Russian leader, Dmitry Peskov, noted, Western countries like to talk about” Russian hackers”, but foreign partners themselves are waging an information war against Russia.
“A huge number of cyber attacks on Russian organizations, individuals and legal entities are constantly organized from the territory of the United States,” he said.
According to him, hackers from Europe and North America regularly try to commit hacks. He noted that a new draft law on Autonomous RUnet is aimed at countering this.
The draft law on the Autonomous operation of the Russian Internet segment, if it is disconnected from the global network infrastructure, was submitted to the State Duma on December 14, 2018. The document is aimed at protecting the stable operation of the Internet in Russia in case of external threats. The bill defines the necessary traffic routing rules and organizes the control of their compliance.
