The Clap👏 Satellite communications company Viasat (NASDAQ: VSAT) said its KA-SAT network, which provides internet services to European & Mediterranean countries, experienced a partial outage.
Surely not a coincidence?🤨 According to a Sky News report, it could have been a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, the same kind of attack that hit Ukraine’s government & banks a few days before.
The news comes shortly after the biggest publicly traded chipmaker in the U.S. “Nvidia” said it was investigating a potential cyberattack.
The bigger picture🖼 While President Biden has made it clear that the U.S. is “prepared to respond” if Russia pursues cyberattacks against its companies. The Russian government, on the other hand, has accused Western nations of making up cyberattack accusations to put more pressure on Russia.
