Hackers knocked out the Russian presidency's website several times on Friday and brought down the central bank website, the Kremlin press service said.

"A powerful cyber attack is under way on the (Kremlin) site," a Kremlin spokeswoman said, adding that the attack was continuing and security experts were trying to prevent further disruptions.

Stuxnet, part II.

Yeah, people may cheer this, but I submit that if we did this it is very, very dangerous and will likely escalate things significantly.

NSA likely is not up to this.
More likely rogue Ukrainian virus writers.

Agreed we’ve been hit many times and the Chinese keep stealing our stuff on a daily basis. But, I just think that if this comes out in the open it just sort of escalates things and will cause people to really focus their anger and attention. It is hard to put toothpaste back in the tube.

don’t know .... not familiar with sharia but know moslems and their attitudes towards creating anything destructive. Not enough time today to relate a story that happened once upon a time regarding moslems prior to 911 and their knowledge of computer technology. Perhaps another time.

FSB false flag operation? Like the 1939 Soviet shelling of their own city on the Finish border, using it as justification to go to war.

No problem here with the Kremlin English website.
