  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “White House to step up efforts to tackle ransomware after pipeline hack” – below is their description.

    #US President Joe Biden has promised “a global effort” to tackle #ransomware attacks as the Colonial oil #pipeline remains shut down following a hack last Friday. Motorists in some parts of the United States have seen long lines at filling stations, but oil experts say this is due to local logistical issues, rather than a wider shortage of fuel. President Biden said there is “no evidence” of Russian state involvement in the incident. Also today, we look at the latest twist in a legal battle over ugg boots.
