Center for Cyber Threats of Russia Spoke about the Problem with Zoom
OREANDA-NEWS. Information about Russian users of Zoom, due to the location of the company's servers, goes abroad, and no one knows who and how can use it in the future. Nikolai Murashov, Deputy Director of the Russian National Coordination Center for Computer Incidents (NKTsKI), informed about this.
"When using the Zoom platform, we have an uncontrolled exit of information outside the territory of the Russian Federation. Its subsequent use becomes unknown to us. I think that we should still switch to domestic systems," Murashov said at an online briefing at the Rossiya Segodnya news agency.
The Center for Cyber Threats also told where the attacks on the websites of the Russian authorities are coming from. According to Nikolai Murashov, hacker DDoS attacks on Russian state authorities during illegal actions for Alexei Navalny were carried out, including from American IP addresses.
According to him, during the actions in support of the blogger, the number of DDoS attacks increased, primarily on the websites of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Labor, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Prosecutor General's Office and the Russian Guard.
"The sources of the harmful effects were located, among other things, in the address space of the United States of America," Murashov said on Tuesday at an online briefing at the Russia Today MIA site.
