Meanwhile, after a deeper delving dive into something somewhere else ……
Biden said he and Vladimir Putin not only discussed the matter, their two countries are apparently going to try to coordinate some action to tackle the waves of extortionware infections, which seem to be mainly orchestrated by miscreants in Russia and typically avoid compromising computers configured to use the Russian language.
IT management software made by Kaseya was lately exploited to install REvil ransomware on as many as 1,500 businesses. The crew behind that software nasty is said to avoid targeting Russian organizations.
That suggests the mother tongue of the programmers is not Russian. If they use by default American English/English American to exploit opportunities and vulnerabilities what does that rather more reveal likely their virtually remote home base?
Wild Wacky Westerners attacking systems and blaming Jolly Roger Johnny Rotten Foreigners to try and avoid all responsibility and any accountability has been the whole essence and raison d’être of the Great Game since forever it was imagined crazy fun to play. Certainly their evident arrogance in thinking that nothing is impossible and the West can lead the ignorant East to a place of their choosing with a litany of alien interventions does not bode well for any fake and feeble denials of their being instrumental in such operational shenanigans to discredit surprisingly able misunderestimated opposition and wonderfully solvent competition.
You though might not see things that way today although one has to agree it is perfectly possible and therefore more likely probably true than not ‽ .
J’accuse. I Kid U Not.
And a little something for that joint committee meeting on the 16th to ponder on cooperating against/with ‽ . Politicians and diplomats and heads of state etc etc do love their little confabs, don’t they, when/where they can fabricate all manner of confidences for media presentation to universal audiences. Three cheers for the media … Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray …… where would we all be without you.

Something to remember whenever nothing is as it ever seems with quantum at play on fields of dreams
The ones claiming Russia is innocent are delusional. When it walks like a duck and it talks like a duck and it sounds like a duck, it’s not a pig. …. Potemkine!
That’s as well as may be, … however, ….. it could be a drake, which is certainly different.
The problem is, and you can imagine it yourself if you put yourself in their position, what do you expect to happen if you poke an innocent bear with a prick from a sharpened blunt stick?

MRDA ….. but one cannot plausibly deny its veracity for surely such then is delusional.
On a crazy hunt for the big bad wolf, there are more than just red herrings to negotiate and pretend were never ever there ….. Cyber-warfare has never posed a greater threat to the world.
What say y’all to those tales shared there? Fake news or far too true to be false and misleading? Be honest now.
