A spokesperson for the US Army Cyber Command (ARCYBER) stated that they have taken offensive actions against cyber threat actors following the Colonial Pipeline attack earlier this year. The spokesperson declined to specify what actions had been taken. The Commander of ARCYBER, Gen. Paul Nakasone also recently stated that the US military is willing to carry out attacks against criminal organizations if they pose a threat to critical infrastructure. The US government continues to attempt to disrupt ransomware threat actors by launching counteroffensive efforts against criminal cryptocurrency exchanges and extortionists supporting the ransomware groups. President Biden is scheduled to hold a video call with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss cyber threats. This will be a follow-up meeting to an in person meeting they had six months ago in Geneva, when President Biden urged Putin to stop turning a blind eye to cyber criminals operating in Russia.
