Russian Hackers Make Attempt to Infiltrate Coronavirus Research Facilities

The Kremlin is at it again…

Vladimir Putin and his Russian government are true, insidious villains – there is little doubt about that – but their latest offensive online maneuver may just be their most dastardly yet.

“While others pursue their selfish interests with reckless behaviour, the UK and its allies are getting on with the hard work of finding a vaccine and protecting global health.”

Russia has predictably denied the accusations, as they have done so many times in the past in the face of overwhelming evidence.

The specific group being blamed has been active since 2014, and it well known to cybersecurity experts the world over.
