Emails: Russia-linked hackers tried to access Clinton server



WASHINGTON (AP) — Russia-linked hackers tried at least five times to pry into Hillary Rodham Clinton's private email account while she was secretary of state, emails released Wednesday show. It is unclear if she clicked on any attachment and exposed her account.

Clinton received the infected emails, disguised as speeding tickets, over four hours early on the morning of Aug. 3, 2011. The emails instructed recipients to print the attached tickets, which would have allowed hackers to take control of their computers.

Security researchers who analyzed the malicious software in September 2011 said that infected computers would transmit information from victims to at least three server computers overseas, including one in Russia. That doesn't necessarily mean Russian intelligence or citizens were responsible.

Clinton has said repeatedly that the unusual homebrew server she used was secure.

But the phishing attempts highlight the risk of Clinton's unsecure email being pried open by foreign intelligence agencies,
even if others also received the virus concealed as a speeding ticket from Chatham, New York. The email misspelled the name of the city, came from a supposed New York City government account and contained a "Ticket.zip" file that would have been a red flag.

Most commercial antivirus software at the time would have detected the software, identified it as dangerous and prevented users from infecting themselves. It was unclear if the State Department's network security would have flagged the infected message, or what precautions were in place protecting Clinton's server in the basement of her home in Chappaqua.

The State Department and other government agencies, during Clinton's tenure and after, suffered its own series of hacking attacks. U.S. counterterrorism officials have linked them to China and Russia.

Certainly no surprise here. Apparently, this was a series of Phishing scams by Russian-linked hackers...derived from her emails. It had something to do with infected-emails disguised as speeding tickets.

Hopefully, Hillary didn't click one...we know how technically-saavy she says she is.

I'm sure this is just the beginning of hacking revelations regarding Clinton's server and there will be more news released very soon.

"Tried" implies failed.

How many times have they successfully hacked into US Government servers?

I'll bet the number isn't zero.

It'll be interesting to watch the fallout, given today's development in Syria. If Hillary wasn't already a bumbling mess amid the Bengazi scandal, then as she limps toward the ambulances we may have the bemused pleasure of watching her take the fall for Russia positioning its support for Assad, maybe Al Queda, having provided information later used against us in her effort to keep emails about her daughter's wedding private.

Or they hack everyone.

Is it very timely, this information on Russian Hackers is out, especially regarding another elite mouthpiece.

Oh! And Why is that info coming out now that Russia is has spoken some truthful things in the UNGA? And how this information going to divert attention from Hillary's email scandal itself.

Peace

Who hasn't had those kind of emails?

Most of them are sent out by bots, I dont think SHE was targeted. However, should anything dodgy be found on her servers I'm quite sure she'll be shouting "It was those nasty russians who put it there, I'm innocent"

Probably some chain email marketing thing from Russia? Or was it planted?

Pffft the Ruskies are clearly light-weights then.

The NSA can hack anyones emails first time around, and have been doing so for years, the US government has approved this.

There's really no way to determine who was responsible for the emails, so saying that it was Russians is very irresponsible. Not to mention that most people with an email account get these kinds of emails. Which makes this pretty much of a non-story.

Russian server are less monitored, It's not surprising it's come from russian computer (probably not a russian hacker)... And everybody got some of those "hacker" mails... so...
Yep, a non-news.

What nothing new here these phishing mails are common from there. MSM once again going to run with it to justify she's in the clear.

It does illustrate just how vulnerable her private server was to hacking. It also doesn't speak well to her server's protection.
Hopefully, she never clicked the link. I'm sure she'll be asked.

Who cares? It's not like she had classified emails on it.

Second.

Here is a copy of one of the infected emails she received:

I'm sure anyone who can't recognize top secret emails, would never be fooled by this.

this matters why?

I'm sure her work computer, mobile phone, bills computer, work emails, have also been hacked multiple times among dozens if not hundreds of attempts.

Just another brain dead news piece for brain dead Americans who actually think they are making important decisions based of this total nonsense reporting.

This email server charade is just a drop in the known ocean of things the government individuals do. The republicans and their media influence are pretending like this is a massive deal worthy of round the clock coverage to make sure they have a better standing come election - so they can break the laws and make themselves rich.

what a load of bulldung.

Well of course it's possible these "special" emails have been selectively released and highlighted to create an automatic assumption that the server was never breached.

Controlled opposition works.

Maybe this matters because she has Top Secret information on her server. She is also running for President of the US and is blackmailable.

yes, 2 whole emails that were not labelled as top secret at the time of sending.

whoopy f*kn doo..

you don't think there are more important things to be focusing on?

This is why the US is a bit of a joke on the world arena and people/countries no longer respect you internationally.

You waste all your time and effort of total horse dung - the republican/democratic media (who ever is in power at the time) Saturates your airwaves with total nonsense like an episode of days of our lives hoping it will convince the uneducated monkey masses which way to vote.

I mean look at you.. Multiple countries are facing off in Syria, the Middle east is a war zone, the economy is going down the toilet, NK is playing with Nukes, South America is getting very aggressive and all you and your TV cares about are 2 stupid bloody emails from 4-5yrs ago.

WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!

Haha..


yeah right, the focus of these emails is driven out of the fear the President of the United States could be blackmailed.

Her having an email about North Korea's nuclear testing means she is blackmailable.

After Clintons blowjob, Bushs 911 and Iraq parades, Bhengazi... the big concern is 2 emails.

Boy o Boy the saturated Murdoch Media really has sucked you in!
