A "professional" cyber attack has hit Russian government bodies, the country's intelligence service says.
A "cyber-spying virus" was found in the networks of about 20 organisations, the Federal Security Service (FSB) said.

What if they got the idea to blame Russia from the show? I say this as person who loaths both Trump and Hilary.

He noted that he was "taken aback a bit" by the "hyperventilation" over Russia's alleged involvement in the hack.

Russia - not unlike Trump - is trying to bury it's trail in accusations
