Biden urges Putin to act on cybercrime

America has been hit by a slew of ransomware attacks this year which have impacted supply chains and forced companies to fork over millions of dollars in payments.

US President Joe Biden has once again urged Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to find out who is responsible and take action.

“The United States expects when ransomware operation is coming from his soil, even though it’s not sponsored by the state, we expect them to act if we give them enough information to act on who that is,” Mr Biden said.

This comes after a major gasoline pipeline and a meat processing facility were each forced to pay millions of dollars in ransom to be able to resume normal operations earlier this year.
