Was The Recent Internet Outage A Russian Cyber Attack?

It is being reported worldwide that a potential Russian Cyber attack took place last week when we experienced a massive power outage, primarily affected east coast Internet users.

Furthermore, on the same day an American vigilante hacker defaced the Russian Foreign Affairs ministry’s website, in what is being called a “revenge attack”.

The hacker, which to many is known as “the Jester,” accessed the website and eventually gained full control. He went on to warn the Russian’s that we know who they are and too stop cyber attacking us.

“Comrades! We interrupt regular scheduled Russian Foreign Affairs Website programming to bring you the following important message,” is what the Jester placed on the ministry’s homepage. He continued with,

“Firstly allow me to get the pleasantries out of the way,” “Nice to see you again Russia. Now see here, I would not want you to get all upset and throw your toys out of your stroller over this mild incursion, so think of this as a ‘professional courtesy’ or if you prefer message from ‘USA with love.’Or better yet, a message ‘from Russia with love’, because technically that that’s what it is with this being your official Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.”

The Jester was certain that he knows it is Russian behind the hack, however sources are unknown surrounding who he knows that.

“So knock it off. You may be able to push around nations around you, but this is America. Nobody is impressed,” stated the Jester. “You disappoint me. I hope this is the last time we have to have this conversation. Now get to your room. Before I lose my tempter. Or do you want to play a game?”

Little is known of how the Jester is, where he resides and where he has gained his experience and knowledge to hack into the most well protected country such as Russia. However, the Jester is well known in the hacker community. He vehemently fights against the United States enemies.

It is still no known who was responsible for last weeks cyber attack, which shut down dozens of major websites such as Twitter, Reddit, Spotify and Amazon. Earlier this month, U.S. intelligence officials have been documented as stating they are “confident” Russia is responsible for the recent hacking of government and political officials.
