The whole world has the same goal these days – to defeat the novel coronavirus, the virus that changes our lives and impacted the way we live, and everything that we used to call normality.
There are a lot of treatments and vaccines in the works these days, but it seems that that rivalry between countries are appearing just as assumed a while ago.
It’s been just reported that the National Security Agency and counterparts in Canda and Britan said that they are seeing various attempts by the Russian hackers trying to break into organizations that are working on a potential coronavirus vaccine.
Russian hackers blamed
NPR.org notes that the Western intelligence agencies said that they believeth hackers are part of the Russian group that is informally known as Cozy Bear and the agency refers to it as APT29.
The same website mentioned above notes that the group has been linked to Russian intelligence and it was blamed for hacking Democratic Party emails in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
“APT29 has a long history of targeting governmental, diplomatic, think-tank, health care, and energy organizations for intelligence gain so we encourage everyone to take this threat seriously,” said Anne Neuberger, the NSA’s cybersecurity director.
“We can say one thing — Russia has nothing at all to do with these attempts,” Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, reportedly said.
First vaccine enters final testing
According to the latest reports, the very first COVID-19 vaccine that’s been tested in the US managed to revamp people’s immunity just the way in which experts were hoping when they created it. You can also check out some of its side effects.
