Future US President Joe Biden has promised harsh punishments for the people behind the cyberattacks on US government agencies and businesses.
“The attack worries me deeply,” said Biden.
Biden vowed on Thursday to take swift action from the day he takes office as president, and his team will make the attack a top priority.
Biden also promised that the parties responsible for such cyber attacks “will pay” for their actions.
“Our opponents should know that as president I will not stand idly by as cyberattacks on our nation,” he said in a statement.
