Who Was Behind Cyber Attack on US Colonial Pipeline?

The Western media is claiming a “Russian-linked” cyber criminal organization hacked the US-based Colonial Pipeline, creating disruptions in American domestic fuel consumption.

The only actual evidence of the organization – called “Dark Side” – was “Russian” appears to be the use of Russian language included in code used for its online tools. However, as Wikileaks exposed, the US itself developed a set of tools to specifically confuse attribution by translating code into any one of several languages used by US adversaries.
