Re: Not Election Hack
Yes it was hacked, regardless of your political stance, accept the facts. The servers were hacked from a phishing campaign. I agree it was Hillary's own fault for losing the election, but none the less, the DNC was hacked. To say otherwise is to make up your own fantasy story that just isn't true. The FBI and DHS have released the report and you can see what happened for yourself. I'm not defending the DNC at all because what was leaked to wikiLeaks showed the corruption and collusion within the DNC. But it was still hacked, and sure WikiLeaks says it wasn't a hack, but do you really think they would risk incriminating anyone? they are friends with the hackers and have no reason to throw the culprits under the bus.

Not Election Hack
Although this article pans out the speculation that this exploitation of the DNC Server was "election-related" - it was not. An insider threat cuased the exposure of the emails that detail federal and international crimes being committed and the DNC, Hillary, and the current administration are crying over that exposure. Hillary lost the election due to the activitites her and her people committed and has nothign to do with the hack, if one want to even call it that. Those e-mails were delivered and the servers unsecurued to the the incompetence and lack of care by DNC officials whop actually think their behavior is above the law. The real story here are the crimes have been and are now being committed by the Democratic and elites of the political spectrum worldwide. As a cyber security professional and former law enforcement officer, I'm disgusted with the way the DNC and those that support that political ideology have acted and continue to act. Added to this, the way the world leaders have taken advanatage and allowed 3rd parties and other nations/cultures to take advanatage of decent people on a world side scale. Let's get back to the real issue, corruption and those responsible for it and stop knocking out this "hacking story" and finish this to the end of what was actually discovered.

FBI, DHS Report Implicates CozyBear - Vectors not discussed
I thoroughly reviewed the report cited in the article. The analysis appears to be incomplete because there was no analysis of the Anthony Weiner computer (the laptop) that was jointly shared with Huma Abedein. Given the propensity of Weiner to make frequent visits to high risk websites such as porn sites, without an analysis of those vectors as the initiation points of system and network encroachment, no definitive conclusion can really be drawn if incident response analysis in accordance with NIST and ISO standards best practices and recommendations were not followed.

The agency teams of the FBI and DHS as well as the initiating analysis of CrowdStrike under the direction of Dmitri Apelovitch would really do justice to their findings to ammend their report with an analysis section discussing this high probability attack vector.
