Recently there was a cyber attack on the United States of America, which has caused many websites to become temporarily inaccessible and the uproar about the cybersecurity of the country.

A five-step plan was released, designed to prevent future strikes on the US which could expose Russia, first being the authorization of the Federal Security Service (FSB) to launch a cyberattack on the United States; through sending an intelligence tip from Saudi Arabia to the Central Intelligence Agency, with a link programmed to have a virus to disrupt the USA’s strike system.

An anonymous tip was then released to us about the cyber-attack, only minutes prior to the event, through the Pentagon Papers which were later labeled as forged related to this disastrous event. The tip contained information about how there are flaws with the CIA Director, Gina Cheri Haspel, as she acted upon false intelligence, a majorly catastrophic mistake.

The FSB was authorized to forge the Pentagon Papers, arranged so that Gina Cheri Haspel was proven to have been aware that the intelligence was false which was referring to Iran’s nuclear weapons, a crucial topic related to the United States due to the recent issue surrounding the testing of an Irani nuclear bomb which was seen as a threat to the US, and still advised President Trump to act upon the papers anyway.

Russian bots were then used in social media to increase posts about Trump’s innocence related to the false Pentagon Papers. After which the Federal Security Service sent the United States more false intelligence from Saudi Arabia, tracking the cyber attack to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea as opposed to the attacks being from the Russian Federation.

As the situation is resolved, we will continue to investigate the true culprit behind the cyber attack and will update accordingly.
