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.

The report comes as Russia stands accused over data breaches involving the Democratic Party in the US.

The Russian government has denied involvement and has denounced the "poisonous anti-Russian" rhetoric coming out of Washington.

The FSB did not say who it believed was responsible for hacking Russian networks, but said the latest hack resembled "much-spoken-about" cyber-spying, without elaborating..

Russia cyber attack: Large hack 'hits government'

Did they infact hack the DNC and this is a tit for tat thing?

Is it even the US?

Why publicly announce such a breach, unless to begin pointing fingers?

I've notice through all of this hacking news lately, nobody is talking about North Korea - or anybody else for that matter. The Feds say it's Russia, but who trusts the Feds any longer?

Funny - the timing - don't you think?

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

That, or the Russians decided they'd better check their own networks after all the trouble the US has had.

Probably to say "hey see we are victims too it couldn't be us!"

Personally, I think blaming Russia and accusing trump of encouraging Russia to hack the DNC is mostly just a Hail Mary attempt to deflect on the reality which seems to an almost complete collapse of DNC and hopeful eventually the RNC..

It's tough to know what to believe any more the whole production of This theatre has really been turned put to 11 lately..

I do know that I trust no one or thing when it comes to this whole ordeal..

I trust my dog, that's about it.

What does a BBC article have to do with Trump ?

Sounds like someone is trying to DEFLECT with accusations.

That is one hell of a leap though.

A real estate tycoon suddenly jumps in to cyber warfare.

If you want to point a finger at someone point it here.

en.wikipedia.org...

Ya know that guy running the country right now so fecklessly, and his party were made to look like fools by 'someone'.

As they say sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Or they were not hacked and are claiming they were to shift blame off of them. "See we were hacked too so it wasn't us who did it".

What does Trump have to do with Russia - is the better question
Trump called for Russia (as a joke?) to dig up Hillary's lost emails - after the DNC hack with Russia's prints on it

If they were hacking and dumping to influence our election - it would benefit Trump to get ahead of the accusations rather than be coming at it from behind

DId you know.

The DNC hack is straight out of plot from 'Madam Secretary' where Russia got blamed for doing something they didn't ?

Morgan Freeman the creator. The narrator of propaganda pieces at the DNC.

Madam Secretary was all about Clinton.

For YEARS the public has been programmed in a hollywood psyop in a number of television shows.

Yes really.

Ukraine was made out to be the villain.

And other rubbish.

The Good Wife same deal.

Alicia got hacked, and her emails were made public.

Like as if they KNEW this was coming.

I think the DNC hack is a FALSE FLAG.

The hollywood script was written YEARS AGO.

Much like the DNC convention was scripted.

I really hate this stuff - because it's too easy

It's so easy to jump back into the cold war - it would be nice to get past all this Rocky and Bullwinkle flag waving once and for all


Russia’s Hacking Is Only Putin’s Latest Outrage

To be clear, hacking into the DNC’s emails is not a one-off move. Russia launched a cyber-attack against Estonia in 2007 and tried to mess with the results of Ukraine’s election in 2014. The Kremlin’s trolls wreak havoc on Western journalists and websites.


But there is evidence beyond even this that Russia has been busy influencing politics globally

Same as us

How did blaming Russia help them - in any way?

Clinton camp is known for crazy conspiracy theories...

The real deal though says the media is hyperventilating over this.
The Director of Intelligence himself :


When asked about how the administration could be expected to respond to reports that Russia played a role in hacking into DNC computers, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Aspen Security Forum on Thursday that "we are not quite ready yet to make a call on attribution."

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

The FBI couldn't determine in over a year if Hillary's home server was hacked, but within 2 days they determined that the DNC was hacked by Russia, and claimed the reason was to help Trumps campaign.... It's all so believable, I mean, the FBI would never go in on a lie they are impartial after all...

There is one candidate that is trying to cover their 'trail' of corruption and lies, and it sure as hell is not Trump.

238 days now since Hillary's last press conference.

This has to win some kind of prize for the most ironic statement ever committed to electrons.

Referencing TV shows now. The site has reached a new low.

I don't watch it but it's based on Madeline Albright. She's been interviewed about and said she consults with them.
Tia whatshername said on Colbert it's based on Albright, and she talks with her regularly.

Not that the truth matters anymore.
