      In an alert issued Thursday morning, the National Security Agency warned that hackers working for Russia’s General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) 85th Main Special Service Center (GTsSS)—better known among Americans as the hackers who went after the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016—are primarily pummeling targets in the U.S. and Europe.

      And once again, the military intelligence hackers, also known as Fancy Bear or APT28, are going after political consultants, political parties, and think tanks, according to the intelligence community’s assessment. The hackers have also been working to break into energy companies, law firms, and media companies since 2019, the NSA said.

      The agency did not specify any targets by name.

      The warning comes just days before the Summer Olympic Games are set to begin in Tokyo, Japan—an event the hackers are all too familiar with. In 2020, the Department of Justice announced a federal grand jury had charged six Russian hackers for their role in targeting the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, which they carried out after Russian athletes were banned from participating under their nation’s flag.

      The Russians are coming!

      Yet again, the NSA proffers zero hard evidence, and once again, the corporate media reports it as believable. Which it ain’t.

      FFS, still beating that poor dead horse –

      “better known among Americans as the hackers who went after the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016”

      I wonder whether rw “sources” claim the hackers to be from

      China. They don’t even say “alleged” anymore.

      It’s probably a good idea to spy on those who have declared you enemy, and who constantly threaten you with military attacks.

      If it isn’t bullshit, that is.

      “better known among Americans as the hackers who went after the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016”

      The only proof here is that the outcome wasn’t the outcome Hillary, Inc. wanted.
      Now about those private, unsecured, non-government servers, used for government business? …

      We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
      If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
