    Russians hack energy company that played major role in Trump Ukraine scandal

    The New York Times was the first to report the hack, and noted the attempts began in early November, as the Bidens, Ukraine and impeachment were dominating the news in the United States while the House impeachment hearings were underway.

    CNN has reached out to the Russian Embassy in Washington for comment but has not yet received a response.

    It is unclear what information the hackers sought or how deeply Burisma may have been compromised. A cybersecurity expert speaking to CNN about the situation said this was likely not the first time Russian operators have hacked Burisma, adding that Russian hackers are very aggressive in their cyber efforts inside Ukraine.

    Planting evidence against Biden?

    Also making a pretty penny diverting funds?

    Fuck you, Trump. Why are you outsourcing this work to foreigners when you have all the American intelligence networks who can do it for you? What happened to your promises to keep jobs in the US?

    This is just like the asshole's golf courses.

    Ukraine asks FBI to help probe suspected Russian hack of Burisma

    Why do no reporters get into what is actually going on, even if speculative? We know there is no there there. It's a fake story. The whole point of a phising campagin is to be able to mimic a company's interanl email communications patterns, so that you can in turn manufacture fake emails that will look like they came from legitimate sources.

    Iow, the reason to hack Burisma is to be able to make counterfeit documents/emails that look authentic.
