The White House Blames Russia for NotPetya, the 'Most Costly Cyberattack In History'

February 16, 2018View for printing

It's been nearly eight months since the malware known as NotPetya tore through the internet, rippling out from Ukraine to paralyze companies and government agencies around the world. On Thursday, the White House finally acknowledged that attack. And in a reversal of its often seemingly willful blindness to the threat of Russian hacking, it has called out the Kremlin as NotPetya's creator.

"In June 2017, the Russian military launched the most destructive and costly cyberattack in history," reads the short statement published by the White House Thursday afternoon.
