Cybersecurity experts believe that the hackers who defaced the World Anti-Doping Agency website after imposing a ban on Russian athletes at the Olympics were likely the same persons who breached the DNC a few weeks ago. Of course, they are not Chinese, and some could think by force of habit.

The agency has recently issued a report on the Russian government’s cover-up of doping during the previous games after one of the Russian doctors who had worked for Russia’s anti-doping agency revealed he helped conceal the facts that Russian athletes used anabolic steroids. Some media reports say that two of the doctor’s former colleagues died in February, but it is unclear how this is connected with the hack.

Shortly after than, the WADA’s website was breached, allegedly by the hacking team named “Fancy Bear”, allegedly sponsored by Russian intelligence agency GRU. The hackers breached WADA after the revelation of widespread cheating by Russian Olympians. As is usual with Fancy Bear, the experts noted that the very public attack masked an intended chilling effect, with a retaliation against the whistleblower, as the hackers attacked her email and got her records out of WADA. According to media reports, this intimidation campaign against the whistleblower who spoke up is well-documented. In the meantime, the revelations had their intended effect: the International Olympic Committee investigated the claims and reported that the Russian government covered up widespread use of performance-enhancing chemicals.

Although it is hard to believe that Olympic athletes were target for a state-sponsored hack, some people believe that athletics are far more important to the government than non-Russians realize.

In the meantime, cybersecurity experts remind that Fancy Bear attacked the Democratic National Committee, along with the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, earlier this summer. The experts point out that the splashy nature of that intrusion revealed another intruder, codenamed Cozy Bear. The latter has also been linked to the Russian intelligence services and came to prominence in 2015 after the hacks of the state department and White House networks. One of the experts admit that Fancy Bear has been too noisy to allow them to focus on Cozy Bear.
