The United States accuses hacking groups linked to Russia of carrying out cyber attacks against US facilities

Nearly 200 American companies have been subjected to a “widespread” cyber attack with ransomware, according to a US cybersecurity organization.

Huntress Labs said the attack targeted information technology company Cassia in Florida before it spread among corporate networks that use the company’s software.

In a statement posted on its website, Cassia said it was investigating a “potential attack” on its electronic systems.

Internet security firm Huntress Labs has suggested that the Russia-linked group Revell and the ransomware it is developing may be behind the attack.
