Russian Intelligence Hackers Are Back, Microsoft Warns, Aiming at Officials of Both Parties

The Russian military intelligence unit that attacked the Democratic National Committee four years ago is back with a series of new, more stealthy hacks aimed at campaign staff, consultants and think tanks associated with both Democrats and Republicans.

That warning was issued on Thursday by the Microsoft Corporation, in an assessment that is far more detailed than any yet made public by American intelligence agencies.

The findings come one day after a government whistle-blower claimed that officials at the White House and the Department of Homeland Security suppressed intelligence concerning Russia’s continuing interference because it “made the president look bad,” and instructed government analysts to instead focus on interference by China and Iran.

Microsoft did find that Chinese and Iranian hackers have been active — but often not in the way that President Trump and his aides have suggested.

1. Good article.

One former White House official said that by censoring or downplaying U.S. intelligence on Russian interference, Mr. Wolf had become “complicit” in Russia’s operations.


They are not wrong. Quisling.
