You know with the Covid outbreak, the Chemical Spill in Siberia, the forest fires, the alleged radiation leaks around St Petersburg, the constitutional vote, keeping Chechnya and Dagestan in their box, it's amazing that Vlad has any time in his day to be doing this too.

It's not entirely unreasonable to suggest that Russiona hackers will target home workers in the hopes of gaining access to remote workers whose employer rushed the remote working set up and doesn't have adequate security. But it's doubtfull that these hackers work for the Russian government but instead will do the usual thing of encrypting data in the hopes of getting a bitcoin pay-off.

Any of my scam phone calls would appear to come from either India or Nigeria (which I entertain with great gusto).
Guess the Ruskautobots don't have the accent for "this is your Windows 10 lottery bank call centre calling", without sounding all Dolph Lundgren Rocky IV.

The rest of the tinternet scams (old linkedin bulk hacked pwd teasers) emanate out of the likes of Czech Republic, Estonia and Ukraine.
N'Kor are perhaps the king of bitcoin harddrive lockdowns, bigKim has to import fine cheese and wine at great expense afterall.

One thing is for sure this dude's (Nigerian in Dubai) interweb global cyber scam party, is all over with now:

Quote:
AN INSTAGRAM star who lived the high life in Dubai while conning millions of people has been brought crashing down by the FBI.
Nigerian influencer Raymond Abbas, 38, was nicked for his alleged major role in a £350million cyber-scam while asleep in his luxury home in Dubai.
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/119828...0m-cyber-scam/

$30m in cash was also discovered earlier this month, what ever internet scam he was doing (CCards likely), sure must have been lucrative.

Local media reports that the FBI will push to extradite Mr Abbas to America, as many of the alleged victims were US citizens.

Including Trump, if John Bolton's new book is to be believed.

Politics in after hours, is this allowed today Mods, it wasn't allowed the other day.

Be that as it may, Russia is an arbitrary dictatorship. We shouldn't be surprised what they get up to.

Arbitrary arrest
Intimidation and murder of journalists
Eclusion of any political opposition
Over flights over Irish air space
Salisbury poisonings

The US is the greatest threat to World peace, this is just lazy deflection from a horrible country.
