Biden says he will speak to Putin over Russian ransomware attack

US President Joe Biden has said he will be speaking to his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin about the Colonial Pipeline cyberattack, given the hackers responsible were a Russia-based ransomware group.

“So far there’s no evidence from our intelligence people that Russia is involved. Although, there is evidence the actor’s ransomware is in Russia,” President Biden said.

A date and location have yet to be announced for the meeting between Biden and Putin – although it could take place when the US president travels to the UK in June.
