By now most everyone has heard about the Colonial Pipeline hack. This large oil pipeline was purportedly shut down by Dark Side, a criminal hacker group. They demanded money to have it reopened. Apparently, the money has been paid and the oil is flowing again.
But Democrats never miss an opportunity to point the finger at Russia. They have zero evidence Dark Side is from Russia. There is no evidence because, big surprise, they are an anonymous hacker group. But that doesn’t stop the Democrats!
NBC is out there pedaling their usual drivel with ZERO credible sources.
WASHINGTON — A Russian criminal group may be responsible for a ransomware attack that shut down a major U.S. fuel pipeline, two sources familiar with the matter said Sunday.NBC News
Sleepy Joe Biden wasted no time and issued this statement.
We have been in direct communication with Moscow about the imperative for responsible countries to take decisive action against these ransomware networksFox Business
Then he quickly back tracked but made another absurd statement.
We do not believe the Russian government was involved in this attack, but we do have strong reason to believe that the criminals who did the attack are living in Russia, that’s where it came fromThe Hill
Literally no one knows where Dark Side, the hacker group, resides. It is very likely that they are distributed across the globe. That is the safest way for hacker groups to operate.
Again, there is NO EVIDENCE that Dark Side in part or whole resides in Russia. But that does not stop the Left from making ridiculous statements.
