(Washington) US President Donald Trump on Saturday downplayed the role of a giant cyber-attack targeting the United States and Russia, but his own foreign secretary thought it was Moscow.
“Cyber talk is more popular in ‘fake news’ media than it actually is,” Trump tweeted. “Everything is under control. Russia, Russia, Russia, it’s a priority slogan when anything happens,” he said, “it could be China (it is possible!)”.
The American president, who has yet to concede defeat in the November 3 presidential election, had the opportunity to reiterate without proof that fraud had affected the ballot.
“I even got my hands dirty on our ridiculous voting machines during the election, which is now clear, which is even more insulting to the United States,” he said. He immediately wrote a tweet following a warning from Twitter about the outcome of the presidential election that Democrat Joe Biden won.
The expected expansion of cyber talk continues as new victims are discovered across the United States, raising fears about the dangers posed by goose activity.
The suspicions of computer security experts converge in Moscow, and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo formally made the allegation on Friday.
“This is a very important task, and I believe we can now say very clearly that it was the Russians who were involved in this activity,” he said.
Russia has strongly denied involvement in the affair. “Russia does not carry out dangerous activities in cyberspace,” said the Russian embassy in Washington.
Hackers have succeeded in compromising the Orion software of Solar Winds, an American company used to manage and monitor the computer networks of large corporations or administrations.
