. Biden tells Putin Russia must crack down on cybercriminals « JO LEE MAGAZINE

PBS — President Joe Biden told Russian President Vladimir Putin in a Friday phone call that he must “take action” against cybercriminals acting in his country and that the U.S. reserves the right to “defend its people and its critical infrastructure” from future attacks.

The warning to Putin was largely a repetition of the tough rhetoric Biden had used during their meeting in Geneva last month. Since then, a new ransomware attack linked to the Russia-based REvil hacking group has caused widespread disruption, placing Biden under growing pressure to this time marry the warning with actions.
