Comments from Arbor - Russian Gov hackers penetrated DNC
June 2016 by Arbor Networks
Following the news that Russian government hackers have penetrated the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, please see below comments from Dan Holden, Director of ASERT at Arbor Networks.
“The fact that Russian hackers have penetrated the DNC is not a surprise and once again highlights how cyber espionage is the new normal. Historically Russia and the USSR before it, have had some of the best spies in the world. Many nations have been quite open about their buildup of cyber capability, Russia chief among them. Unfortunately, these types of attacks are not only here to stay, but given the utter reliance on the Internet today, are likely to grow in a very serious manner.”
