Patrushev spoke about the growth of hacking attacks on information systems Russia


Recently increased the number of hacking attempts of the Russian information systems from the outside, said in an interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”, the Secretary of security Council of Russia Nikolai Patrushev.

He explained that it comes as the hacker action and unauthorized collection of personal data. Patrushev says that, while hacking used operators and service providers around the world, and the methods themselves “constantly evolyutsioniruet”.

Secretary SB of Russia noted that the administration of President Barack Obama’s “unfounded” accuses Russia of hacking attacks, however, ignores the fact that “major Internet servers located in the USA and used by Washington for intelligence and other purposes.”

Patrushev said, what is the strategic goal of Russia in security matters. According to him, it is necessary to create a system that would be based on generally accepted rules of conduct of different countries in the information space. This work is carried out by the group of governmental experts of the UN.

Patrushev noted that an important step in achieving this goal is adopted by the General Assembly resolution “developments in the field of information and telecommunications in the context of international security”, initiated by Russia. Co-authors were Germany, Belgium, Finland, Spain, Portugal, South Korea and some other European and Asian countries.

In early November, the television channel NBC, citing senior sources in the intelligence and the documents that reporters were able to see, reported that us military hackers were able to infiltrate the command system of the Kremlin, in the power supply system of Russia and in the Russian telecommunications network. The sides of the channel noted that cyber weapons will be used only in the event of significant attacks on the USA network, which, in their opinion, unlikely.

In response, the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov said that Moscow supports the security measures of computer systems in Russia at a level consistent with threats.
