Russian Hackers Stole Files on Donald Trump

Russian Hackers Stole Files on Donald Trump

Hackers reportedly linked to the Russian government managed to steal research files on Donald Trump from the Democratic National Committee (DNC). It turned out that they had been lurking in the systems since at least summer 2015, i.e. well before Donald Trump sealed the Republican nomination.


These research files are usually used by political parties for attack ads and leaking story ideas to journalists. As for spy agencies, they normally maintain dossiers on world leaders to better understand their thinking and habits.

The cybersecurity firm hired by the DNC to investigate the breach said that it found two different hacking groups hunting the Trump files. Those who got in last summer might be linked to Russian federal security service, while another team is probably linked to Russian military intelligence. The firm spent a few days removing the hackers from the party’s computers.

In such cases, cybersecurity companies act as both IT help and private intelligence service – while they are hired to clean up the mess and get the system working again, the firms also try to figure out who was behind the hack. This particular firm employs people who have worked for or close to the US government and has a particular specialty in tracking hacking teams for foreign governments. It turned out that some of the hackers found inside the DNC’s computers have previously been linked to espionage campaigns against Nato and Germany’s Bundestag.

It must be said that foreign cyberspies often target US political campaigns: for example, China was accused of hacking Barack Obama’s and John McCain’s presidential campaigns in 2008. In the meantime, US spies also regularly target national party systems in other countries.

In this particular case, it is unclear whether the DNC would have too much of an issue with people stealing Trump files. Political parties ostensibly collect and maintain opposition research to spread negative stories. The cybersecurity company said there was no evidence of any other data being stolen from the party.

It is also unclear what Donald Trump will make of the breach. It is known that in the past he has boasted that President of Russia has called him “bright and talented.” In response, Trump praised Putin as a “strong leader.”

Crash1 avatarThat last sentence almost made me throw up! And if I ever hear the term "President Trump", I KNOW I will! Then again, we ARE speaking about a country that re-elected G.H.W.Bush for a second term!

Luckily I live in Australia ... ANOTHER country that constantly elects incompetent rulers. Thankfully the Senate and Parliament seem to keep MOST of the dingbat ideas out of legislation ... and there's no such thing as a Prime Ministerial Veto!
