|The American government has officially accused the Russian Federation of hacking the Democratic party’s computer networks in attempt to “interfere” with the presidential election. Hillary Clinton and other officials of the United States put blame on Russian hackers for stealing thousands of emails from the Democratic party, but they have never pointed directly at the Russian government before.
The US authorities issued an official statement saying that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized the breach. This move further escalated tensions with Russia after the US Secretary of State called for the country to be investigated for war crimes in Syria.
In response, Vladimir Putin’s spokesman revealed that every day Putin’s website gets attacked by tens of thousand of hackers, lots of them being traced to the territory of the United States. However, the Russian authorities do not blame the White House each time. In addition, the Russian foreign ministry said the US lacked any evidence for its accusations, as always. At the same time, Russia reiterated an offer to US officials to hold talks on cooperation in fighting cybercrime. Some believe that the formal attribution of the breach could trigger sanctions against Russia.
The US agencies disclosed that some of the US states had detected attempts to hack their election systems, most originating from servers operated by a Russian company. But the agencies didn’t attribute this activity to the Russian government, and simply recommended to “decentralize” the nature of the US voting systems. Besides, they also urged states to seek additional cybersecurity aid from the DHS, and 21 of the 50 states have already done so.

|The US government really needs to shut the fcuk up moaning like a bunch old lady's ....the world is slowly getting bored with the same shite over and over again!!|
|The real issue is US Government has no business being on the Internet using servers they can't protect.|
|@SirSeedsAlot, good point.|
|This all seems like a big joke to me. Everyone in the government seems to care that Russia hacked the DNC but nobody cares about all of the illegal activity they uncovered. We should be thanking them and prosecuting those responsible for the illegal activities that were exposed. It is every American's responsibility to expose those in our government that is not doing the right thing. Sadly the corruption has spread to every corner of our government. It feels like a slap in the face that they know that the American people know what's going on and they still don't care to do anything about it. In the past, they would at least pretend like they cared or try to cover it up. Now we attack those who expose them instead.||
