The white hat hacker has estimated the probability of a hacker attack on the websites of Internet giants – E Hacking News
There is no need to worry about the security of Russian systems after a global failure in the work of world sites, since the servers of all state institutions are located on the territory of Russia
Information security expert Denis Batrankov explained that the problem of modern systems is that many companies do not have the opportunity to create their own office to host their servers there. As a result, they order servers from other hosting providers where they host their product. All responsibility in this case falls on the hosting provider, but the risk of failures increases significantly.
Vakulin illustrated his opinion with an example of Amazon Web Services hosting.
“Many sites are hosted by Amazon Web Services, including small and medium — sized businesses. Since there was a large and large-scale failure, then all the sites that were generally hosted on this platform go down after it”, the hacker said.
The expert believes that, despite the recent attacks on the American pipeline company Colonial Pipeline and World’s Biggest Meat Supplier JBS, Russia should not worry too much about industrial safety.
“As for government agencies, their servers are located in Russia. The data is stored in our country. From a security point of view, everything has been done to prevent third parties from accessing this data”, the expert said.
The programmer also drew attention to the fact that the State Duma was going to oblige foreign IT companies with an audience of more than 500 thousand people a day to open branches in Russia.
“This law can still be finalized to the point that all data will be stored on Russian servers,” Vakulin said.
In conclusion, the programmer shared his vision of the future in the IT field. He believes that neural networks will control the servers.
“I carefully monitor how our technologies and knowledge of artificial intelligence and neural networks are improving,” Vakulin said. ” Most likely, neural networks will simply monitor everything in the future: they will be engaged in tracking the site. In 20 years, programmers and cryptographers will simply observe the work of artificial intelligence, somehow refine it, and it will already do the work for them.”
Earlier, Internet users reported a global failure in the work of the sites of a number of media outlets, companies and social networks around the world. Problems were observed, for example, at CNN, Twitter, Guardian, Amazon, Reddit, New York Times. The problems occurred due to a failure in the work of the American cloud service provider Fastly. Within an hour, the problems were fixed.
