The Russian intelligence agency FSB has issued a security alert this week warning Russian organizations of potential cyberattacks launched by the United States in response to the SolarWinds supply chain attack.
The alert was issued after officials of the new Biden administration declared that attacks like the SolarWinds ones could trigger a response of their government.
The Russian government always denied any involvement in the SolarWinds attack.
The Russian National Coordination Center for Computer Incidents (NKTSKI) published a security bulletin to warn Russian businesses of the imminent risk of cyber attacks as a retaliation for the SolarWinds attacks that US Government agencies attributed to Moscow.
The Russian National Coordination Center for Computer Incidents (NKTSKI) was created by the Federal Security Service (FSB) in order to prevent, detect and counter cyberattacks on critical infrastructure facilities as well as repair damage from such attacks.
The news of the bulletin was first reported by ZDNet that also shared the alert (Russian language) published by the Russian Government.
The alert also includes a set of recommendations to Russian businesses to prevent cyber attacks.
