The Committee of the US Democratic party in elections to Congress, said the cyber attack on its servers. This is the third account hacking that leads to the leak of data from the American Democrats. Of involvement in it again I suspect Russia. According to the source The New York Times, the cyber attack was carried out by the group of hackers associated with the Main intelligence Directorate (GRU) of Russia.
Such an assumption with the American newspaper shared a Federal official close to the investigation of the incident. According to him, we are talking about the group “Fancy bear”. American experts believe that the same people involved in the hacking of statistical information gathered by the headquarters of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s supporters of her opponent, Republican Donald trump.
The FBI don’t know what data leaked to hackers. The affected Committee of the democratic party Congressional raises funds for the election campaign of candidates of the party. In this regard, the source for the NYT said that it could be the data about the donors of the Democrats.
Previously the United States saw “Russian” in the trail of the leak of the official correspondence of Hillary Clinton. President Barack Obama suggested that in this way Russia is trying to influence the outcome of elections.
The Kremlin has called such allegations absurd, noting “manic” desire of American politicians to use Russia in the presidential race. The head of the Russian foreign Ministry said, commenting on these charges, he wanted to curse.
The claims of Democrats that the scandal played into his hands, made fun of Donald trump. He believes that in this way his opponents are trying to divert attention from his failed burglary correspondence by Wikileaks.Related posts:
