US President Joe Biden has warned that cyber-attacks could erupt if the United States becomes stronger and starts a gun war. Biden made the remarks at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) on Tuesday, citing attacks on Russia and China.

“I think if we end a war; A real gunfight with a major power - then this could lead to a cyber violation. Biden highlighted the issues that could pose a threat to China. He said President Xi Jinping's goal was to become the world's most powerful military power. As well as establishing China as the world’s largest and most prominent economy by the 2040s or mid-decade.

The White House says senior members of the Biden administration's national security team have been in contact with senior members of the Kremlin about cyber attacks in the United States since the June 16 summit between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva.

Cybersecurity has topped the Biden administration's agenda after multiple high-profile attacks on companies such as network management firm Solarwinds, colonial pipeline firm, meat processing firm JBS and software firm Cassair.
