Moscow (AFP) - A massive cyberattack has hit at least five of Russia's largest banks, Moscow-based internet security giant Kaspersky said Thursday.

The country's largest lender, state-controlled Sberbank, said it had been hacked into on Tuesday but managed to neutralise the attack automatically without disturbing its operations.

Kaspersky said in a statement that the distribution of denial attacks (DDoS) began Tuesday at 1300 GMT and targeted "the websites of at least five well-known financial institutions in the top 10" in Russia.

The attacks were still continuing on Thursday. Most lasted around one hour but the longest lasted almost 12 hours, Kaspersky said.

DDoS attacks involve flooding websites with more traffic than they can handle, making them difficult to access or taking them offline entirely.

These attacks saw as many as 660,000 requests being sent per second using a network of more than 24,000 hijacked devices located in 30 countries. More than half the devices were in the United States, India, Taiwan and Israel, Kaspersky said.

Really not so enthused about this... Thinking back to Biden's idiotic remarks. I sure hope this isn't the case, but we know they are grasping at the moment. :(

This following a Massive blackout on Nov 8th that left 300,000 without power. Media reports say due to a power plant outage.

Then there's this...

U.S. military hackers have penetrated Russia's electric grid, telecommunications networks and the Kremlin's command systems, making them vulnerable to attack by secret American cyber weapons should the U.S. deem it necessary, according to a senior intelligence official and top-secret documents reviewed by NBC News.

American officials have long said publicly that Russia, China and other nations have probed and left hidden malware on parts of U.S critical infrastructure, "preparing the battlefield," in military parlance, for cyber attacks that could turn out the lights or turn off the internet across major cities.

It's been widely assumed that the U.S. has done the same thing to its adversaries. The documents reviewed by NBC News — along with remarks by a senior U.S. intelligence official — confirm that, in the case of Russia.

Haha! The American public is "pretty damn resiliant", Biden said. Cry-in, play-doh and fn therapy dogs. These people are a product of Obama's system, the therapy dogs were sent to Congress!  Just.. whaaa?  I can't even believe this shit! 

So, now they tried to float a leak in msn today that Trump's campaign people had contact with Russians.  No info  except it happened and who said it. Nothing else but a Democrat slant. The brainwashing campaign right now is massive on the news.  I'm starting to see how they do it now, just by dissecting an article somewhat.  

Anyway, if the snowflakes are that scared, why don't they realize that Obama has put us at the brink of nuclear war with Russia several times but Russia won't bite.  It's obvious who is antagonizing who.  And guess what, it's all over fn Syria which I don't care about and they should have stayed out of there. 

Biden sits up there with a smirk on his face and we're the ones that could get voporized! The shitstains will be inside their bunkers with their Cabinet spread out all over to make sure the head of this snake doesn't get chopped off once and for all.  

Criminals and murders run this place and Biden is a pedophile too! Absolute proof on a video I can dig up, him whispering in her ear! omg

Makes one start to think of their own mortality, being rules by shits like these.

O crap here we go .

Lets don't poke the bear .

Especially not taking "credit" for poking the bear if you were not even close to it.  This could turn out nasty.  Trump is going to have a baptism of fire by the looks of it!  Like JFK he is fighting the elite, the establishment, the corrupt and power hungry Soros clan..
