Cybersecurity experts claim the Russian military hacked the Ukrainian gas company linked to the scandal that led to President Trump's impeachment. According to a new report from the the cybersecurity firm, Area 1 Security, hackers targeted workers at Burisma Holdings and stole login information to gain entry to the company's servers.
As you likely recall,Joe Biden's son, Hunter, served on Burisma's board from 2014 through 2019. Back in July, Mr. Trump urged Ukraine's president to investigate the Bidens over Hunter's connection to Burisma.
But according to Area 1 Security, the Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Army (GRU), "launched a phishing campaign targeting Burisma Holdings" around November. "The Russians were trying to steal user names," and "from that perspective they were successful," says Area 1 co-founder Oren Falkowitz. "What they intend to do from there is unknown.”
- American prosecutors in 2018 indicted 12 peoplesaid to be members of the GRU in connection with the hacking of Democratic organizations and Clinton's 2016 campaign.
