Founder of «Digital weapons and protection» (Zor Security, also known as Esage Lab) Alisa Shevchenko, came under US sanctions over alleged cyber attacks, said that did not cooperate with the Russian government, wrote in the Saturday magazine Forbes.

Company Shevchenko has previously come under sanctions Washington after accusations of cyber attacks against U.S. government institutions, the responsibility for which US blamed on Russia. In particular, Zor Security allegedly gave the Russian security services «technical research and development», and now the company is prohibited from doing business in the United States, says Forbes.

Shevchenko said that someone is trying to make her a «scapegoat» in the «cyberblade» between the US and Russia, says Forbes.

«We’re not programs to crack for the Russian government», — quotes Forbes Shevchenko’s words from an interview of 2015.

«How is it possible that my little simple company (long since closed) could appear in the same list with the FSB and international terrorists?» — I wrote to Shevchenko in his Twitter. Then she added her version of the incident. According to her, «a naughty Santa, late at night on Christmas hacked Obama, and published there by random Russian names».

What really happened by: anonymous clerk at US treasury googled the internet for ‘cyber’ while intel analysts were on their Christmas vacation.
