US Senate Currently Under CyberAttack by Fancy Bear

2018-01-12

The Associated Press has reported that the US Senate is under cyberattack from the same Russian military intelligence unit, nicknamed Fancy Bear, that has attacked French and British political leaders over the last two years.  The attack consists of a mimic of the official Senate email system that gathers emails from the targets– US Senators and their staff.  Two days ago, the same unit published emails hacked from the Olympic Doping Committee in an attempt to discredit the agency just before the Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea.  Trend Micro published a report detailing the hacking charges, which is the source of this AP story.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again– our country is under cyberattack from Russia, the same country which declared a cold war on us in 1919, after we sent troops to try to crush the Russian Revolution.
