Officials are increasingly confident that the Russian government is intensifying a campaign to steal U.S. computer records and leak damaging information to the American public
US officials become more and more confident that hackers, involved in cyber intrusions in the country, are supported and protected by Moscow. Recently, hackers stole thousands of documents from the Democratic party.
One of the intruders, a hacker who names himself as Guccifer 2.0, is believed to be part of a wider network, created by Russia.
While the hacker denies working on behalf of the Russian government, U.S. officials and independent security experts say the syndicate is one of the most striking elements of what looks like an intensified Russian campaign to target prominent American athletes, party officials, and military leaders.
