Probably the Soviets made a deal with Trump over the Baltic States, Ukraine and M.E. to help him win the election. I mean in one of his tweets, Comrade Trump gave the go ahead for the Russians to commit espionge against the United States.
Cybercrime Links To Russian State Hackers
n 2015, there were over one million cyber-attacks on individuals and companies every day, and that is why even the strongest US response to the theft of the Democratic National Committee emails will do little to deter future state-sponsored attacks, cybersecurity experts say.
The sheer volume and increasing sophistication of network attacks provide plausible deniability to state-sponsored groups, like the APT 28 and APT 29 thought to be behind the DNC hack, says Christopher Porter, of cybersecurity company FireEye.
How Hackers Broke Into John Podesta and Colin Powell’s Gmail Accounts
The email, however, didn’t come from the internet giant. It was actually an attempt to hack into his personal account. In fact, the message came from a group of hackers that security researchers, as well as the US government, believe are spies working for the Russian government. At the time, however, Podesta didn’t know any of this, and he clicked on the malicious link contained in the email, giving hackers access to his account.
Months later, on October 9, WikiLeaks began publishing thousands of Podesta’s hacked emails. Almost everyone immediately pointed the finger at Russia, who is suspected of being behind a long and sophisticated hacking campaign that has the apparent goal of influencing the upcoming US elections. But there was no public evidence proving the same group that targeted the Democratic National Committee was behind the hack on Podesta—until now.
