Military Alliance NATO said on Saturday that it would inspect its information systems for a cyber attack against targets of the U.S. administration.
- At the moment, there is no evidence that our computer networks have been hacked.
Our experts will continue to investigate the situation.
The aim is to identify and reduce the potential risks to our information networks, a NATO spokesman told AFP.
The European Commission, for its part, said it had not found any disruption in its information system.
According to the outgoing President of the United States Donald Trump, the cyber attack against the targets of the US administration is "under control."
At the same time, he downplayed Russia’s role in the event.
Trump commented on Twitter.
- Russia, Russia, Russia.
This is the main motto when something happens, Trump writes.
He also suggests, albeit without evidence, that China "may" be involved.
Trump’s statement came a day after the country’s foreign minister, Mike Pompeo, had once again accused Russia of a massive cyber attack.
According to Pompeo, it is "quite clear" that Russia has been involved.
Russia has denied the allegations.
The malware has hit destinations in the United States as well as other countries
The cyber attack was revealed last weekend.
Federal police FBI and security agency CISA warned a few days ago that the attack continued.
- This threat poses a serious threat, CISA has emphasized.
Eliminating the threat is, according to the agency, very complex and challenging.
An attack on computer networks has infiltrated malware.
Hackers are suspected of infiltrating the systems, taking advantage of software updates from SolarWinds, which is responsible for network management tools.
Software giant Microsoft was known late Thursday to have more than 40 customers hit by the malware.
About 80 percent of them are from the United States, but sites have also been found in Belgium, Britain, Canada and Spain, among others.
The CISA agency has not identified who or who is suspected of the attack.
Instead, private security companies have referred to hackers affiliated with the Russian administration.
