FBI director says Russia is conducting cyberattacks against the US with the support of ransomware gangs

According to FBI Director Christopher Wray, the FBI is focused on preventing devastating cyberattacks. At a minimum, the bureau helped prevent a 2021 Iranian-backed attack on the Boston Children's Hospital.

As the war in Ukraine progresses, the FBI has seen Russia take steps to carry out potentially devastating cyberattacks against U.S. and foreign targets, according to FBI Director Christopher Wray, prompting the agency to preempt potential targets and stop attacks. Christopher Ray, speaking at the Boston Cyber ​​Security Conference, said that Russian-based ransomware gangs are engaged in cyber activities in support of the Russian government.

However, according to Christopher Wray, China has been closely following the events since the beginning of the war in Ukraine and is by far the biggest national threat to the United States. China's efforts to dominate the world's technology are partly due to the theft of research and confidential information from American companies.
