So a company entrenched with the US government claims China is hacking an already decided election against a friendly nation with new tools.
From the Fireye website,
"FireEye Government Email Threat Prevention (ETP) has been granted a Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMPSM) Authority to Operate (ATO). It is the first FedRAMP-compliant cloud email security offering to provide advanced threat protection for government users."
Not really a stretch of the imagination to think that those that pay your bills ask you to tell a few porkies every now and again in the interests of propaganda especially during a trade war with said nation.
