13 Page-FBI-DHS Report Analyzes Alleged Russian Election Hacking

Here’s the report that’s stirred all the fuss over whether the Russians sponsored cyber attacks on the U.S. presidential election process. The 13-page report report was released last week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security.

According to Threat Post site that’s posted the document, “The 13-page report (PDF) said attackers masqueraded as third parties, hiding behind false online personas designed to cause the victim to misattribute the source of the attack.’ It said hackers aimed ‘to compromise and exploit networks and endpoints associated with the U.S. election, as well as a range of U.S. Government, political, and private sector entities.’”

Expect to be hearing more about this matter in the coming weeks. It’s good to have the report on hand.
