FBI and DHS Release Results of Russian Hacking Probe

posted by Eddie




A little earlier today the White House announced a handful of additional sanctions against the Russians for hacking the DNC and John Podesta’s email account. My colleague, Jay Caruso, posted on it. This is one of those decisions that Obama has made to take a parting shot at Trump. It isn’t like the fact that the Russians were targeting out electoral system is news. They hit the voter records of Arizona and Illinois back when everyone thought Trump was a joke.

To bolster the reasoning for the sanctions, the joint FBI/DHS report on the hacking has been released.

The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on Thursday released a joint report detailing how federal investigators linked the Russian government to hacks of Democratic Party organizations.

The document makes clear reference to the hacks of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, though it does not mention either by name.




The 13-page report provides technical details regarding tools and infrastructure used by Russian civilian and military intelligence services 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.” (See the entire report below.)

The report, known as a “Joint Analysis Report” or JAR, refers to the Russian hacking campaign as “Grizzly Steppe.”

It comes as part of a slate of retaliatory measures against Russia issued Thursday by the Obama administration in response to the hacks, and expands on a joint statement issued by the two agencies in October, formally attributing the attacks to Russia.

In the October statement, officials described the the hacks and subsequent publication of stolen emails on WikiLeaks as an attempt to “interfere” with the U.S. election that is “consistent with the Russian-directed efforts,” but provided no evidence to support their assessment.
