As Biden As the government unveils a growing list of issues, the White House imposed sanctions this week on Russia, including the disruption of the 2020 elections, the poisoning of protesters Aleksey Navalny, and SolarWinds shooting which swept away US government agencies and many business companies.

The lawsuit may provide a model for the government to order that technology companies disrupt security in their products or to put “backs.” (Several legal and legislative bodies around the world continue to promote such opportunities).

In the case of San Bernardino, the FBI found a way to access the device without Apple’s help.

As part of a lawsuit filed by the White House against Russia, Biden officials have issued a list of cyber security vendors who allegedly provide smuggling weapons and other services to those who rob Russia. One of these companies, Positive Technologies, is a member of Microsoft’s Active Protections Program, a group of about 100 software vendors who receive Microsoft alerts about Windows crashes or other Microsoft products before it is released.

The company vehemently denied the allegations.
