Microsoft has told about hacker threat for representatives of all political circles of the USA — Rambler News Service


The president of Microsoft Brad Smith has said in an interview to MSNBC TV channel that each representative of any of political circles of the USA is vulnerable for the hacker attack and is her potential purpose. "There is a special set of the attacks, and we have no doubts that this special set of websites has been created by the so-called Fancy Bear group, or Strontium which widely is associated with the Russian government. We have no doubts that it is the same group which is responsible for the attacks in the USA during elections of 2016" — Smith has told. Answering a question whether the attacks have been concentrated only on those organizations which support toughening of sanctions against Russia, Smith has noted that besides such organizations, there were also counterfeit websites imitating pages of the Senate of the USA. "I think, would be correct for us to draw a conclusion that each person in all political circles at the same time both is vulnerable, and is the potential purpose of the attack. We have to postpone enough our disagreements together to do everything possible for protection of democratic process in this country" — Smith has added. He has also added that there are no certificates that these attacks were successful. Earlier Microsoft has stated that the group of hackers which is allegedly connected with the Russian government has made attempts to receive control over six domains for the purpose of influence on congressional elections of the USA. According to the company, groups are known under the names Strontium, Fancy Bear and APT28.
