Russian builds ‘Covid for Computers’ to damage UK’s laptops and mobile phones

Hackers from Russia’s spy agency and military intelligence have spent 20 years penetrating Britain’s cyber defences for weaknesses


Moscow has come about a method to paralyze the UK’s home laptops and personal mobiles dubbed ‘Covid for computers’.

Keyboard warriors from Russia ’s spy agency FSB and military intelligence GRU have spent 20 years penetrating Britain’s cyber defences for weaknesses.

And now they are ready to retaliate for crushing economic sanctions inflicted on Russia.

They have come across the most productive way to deliver viruses into our homes is by contaminating porn sites with them.

A former cyber spy told the Sunday Mirror: “One click on an enticing video is enough to introduce malware into your computer or mobile.

“The advice for safe cyber sex is the same as for real sex – use protection.”


That means always accepting updates when offered which place the newest security software on devices to ward off denial of service attacks.

Our critical substructure and most big companies now have enough safety measures in place to foil even state sponsored cyber aggressors.

But despite that the National Cyber Security Centre recorded 777 attempted breaches last year as Russia, China, North Korea and Iran tried to infiltrate four in ten British businesses.

But it is small firms and individuals without any advanced preservation who are most at risk.

The only safe way to stop the spread of viruses is to follow Covid rules – and self-isolate. Keep all diplomatic information on a laptop not linked to the internet so viruses cannot destroy it.

And then use a second machine to go about your day to day business.

Russia has so far done something similar on a bigger scale, as its internet network can be disengaged from the rest of the world if needed. They tested it in January in preparation for cyber war.
