Six Russian intelligence operatives charged in global hacking

1 min read

On Monday the US Department of Justice (DOJ) charged Russian hackers in the worldwide cyberattack that included the French election and Winter Olympics.

The US Justice Department announced charges against six Russian GRU officers in connection to a four-year-long hacking spree that included the disruption of the 2017 French presidential election and the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

U.S. Attorney Scott Brady says the shared democratic ideals of the targeted countries (U.S., U.K., France, Ukraine) mean that they’re all top targets of Russia, which “will stop at nothing to destroy those ideals and instill a sense of instability in its adversaries.”
