Russian Hackers Breach Democrats To Steal Data On Trump

Washington Post: Government-sponsored group hacked Democratic National Committee to access email, chat traffic, and all 'opposition research' on GOP candidate Donald Trump.

Russian hackers believed to be sponsored by the Russian government, have compromised the networks of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), particularly targeting "opposition research" information on GOP candidate Donald Trump, reports the Washington Post.

According to security firm CrowdStrike, which is investigating the attack, two separate hacking groups -- dubbed Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear by CrowdStrike -- are responsible. DNC first learned of the intrusion in April, but researchers say that attackers had gained access last summer.

This just shows how far behind the U.S. compared to the rest of the world when it comes to hacking and digital security. It might produce some of the most popular consumer facing produces and services in the world, but when it comes to protecting its assets, there are so many levels of its infrastructure which are open to the world. 

If Hilary's email debacle is anything to go by, she won't do much about that if she gets the nod for president.
