Russia Plays the Cybervictim Card

Russia’s Federal Security Service, or FSB, recently reported that it found a cyberspying virus in the computer networks of more than 20 state authorities and defense contractors.

The claim that malware has infected various government and defense companies, published last month by Russia’s official TASS news agency, came in the midst of a flurry of accusations that Russia has engaged in cyberattacks against U.S. targets in an effort to impact the presidential election.

The Federal Security Service revealed virus software for cyberspying in computer networks of about 20 organizations in Russia.

The attack was aimed at information resources of the state authorities, scientific and defense companies, the defense industry, and other infrastructure operations, the organization said.
