A Russian Hacking Resurgence
The 2018 midterms are over, but Putin and the Russian hackers haven’t taken any time off from sowing discord. According to analysts, there’s been a resurgence since Election Day in Russian spearfishing attacks against U.S. government institutions, media outlets, and think tanks.
In one instance, Russian hackers impersonated a State Department spokesperson over email, sending fake government documents with corrupted links — all with the goal of getting recipients to download malware.
These attacks on our country will only grow worse until our leaders in Washington finally take appropriate action and adopt a proactive counteroffensive.
