Russian hackers of SolarWinds back on the attack

John Dickson of the security firm Denim Group said the latest attacks suggest the sanctions imposed by Washington are insufficient.

“I think the sanctions were a starting point and we need to ratchet them up,” Dickson told AFP.

Dickson said the various hacking operations from Russia “are all different iterations of the same information operations” with Kremlin approval and that “they’re doing it without fear of retribution.”

SolarWinds last year disclosed that as many as 18,000 customers and more than 100 US companies were affected by the hack. Its roster of clients includes government agencies and companies among the top 500 in the United States.
