Biden Says Russia Has ‘Some Responsibility’ In Pipeline Ransomware Attack | Ukraine Today .org

US. President Joe Biden has said that Russia has “some responsibility” to address a ransomware attack that has paralyzed the largest U.S. fuel pipeline, although he refrained from directly blaming the Kremlin.

Biden said there was “no evidence” the Russian government was involved in the cyberattack on Colonial Pipeline, but that “there is evidence” the hackers or the ransomware software they used are “in Russia.”

Cyberexperts say the network is based in Russia or former Soviet states, where local security services may tolerate and sometimes even employ these cybercriminals.
