It became known about the hacking of the US State Department by “Russian hackers”: Politics: World: Lenta.ru

Date:

Suspected Russian hackers last year hacked into the US State Department’s electronic network and stole thousands of emails from department employees. This is reported by Politico, citing sources in the United States Congress.

According to them, the cybercriminals gained access to the correspondence of the offices, which deal with both European issues and East Asia and the Pacific region.

At the moment, it is not established whether, as a result of the attack, the hackers gained access to classified information. It should be noted that it is not known if this hack was part of a hacker attack through SolarWinds software.

December 14 last year, Reuters reportedthat Russian hackers allegedly carried out an attack on the US Department of Homeland Security and gained access to the department’s internal communications. In this case, the attack noticed just almost a year later, after about nine months. The attack was part of a campaign that also hacked into the systems of the United States Department of the Treasury and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. Moscow denies allegations of hacker attacks on US departments and finds them unfounded.
