The Russian Security Council estimates that 75% of cyberattacks in the world come from the US

Published on

The overwhelming majority of cyberattacks in the world come from the US, declared Russian National Security Council Undersecretary Oleg Khramov.

“Analysis of reports from leading foreign and Russian companies in the field of information security shows that the largest number of cyber attacks are carried out with the use of the information infrastructure located in the United States,” said Khramov to the AiF newspaper.

According to Khramov, between 2016 and 2019 the US accounted for 40 to 75% of harmful activity, while Russia accounted for 2 to 7%.

“These data, which are not disclosed in the West but are available to the public, clearly demonstrate to anyone the inconsistency of the argument of the global Russian threat in cyberspace,” he stressed.

At the same time, according to the FBI, more than 300,000 cybercrimes are registered each year in the US itself, which, according to various estimates, cause damages of between 57,000 and 109,000 million dollars for the US economy.

Recently, The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) office and the United States Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) have warned of the growth of campaigns that use ‘vishing’ attacks in the framework of the coronavirus pandemic, as stated cybersecurity researcher Brian Krebs’ portal.

The official recalled that Russia is proposing to its foreign partners a “non-politicized collaboration” in the fight against cyber attacks.
