Well publicised attacks against the US Democrat National Committee exposed earlier this month are part of a wider pattern of attacks against a much broader range of US political targets, according to new research by Dell SecureWorks.

      Lovely. The DNC displays their total incompetence for all the world to see (just like their candidate), and you respond to the news by alleging that the main target of the DNC (Trump) is somehow in league with bad old Putin.

      Well, I guess the best defense is a good offense. Too bad yours isn't that good.

        You moron. He's reiterating the well known fact that Putin and Trump are so far in love with each other that people have painted a giant mural that depicts them making out. Get a clue, before you spew, Johnny Dufus.

          And giant murals can't be wrong.

          What else are the murals saying? I thought I'd ask, since you know so much about them...

      In fairness, the RNC are still figuring out how fire works, so they may not have any systems to hack.

        Come now, they know about fire.

        How would they burn crosses and heretics without it ?

          I think you are confused about which party the cross burners, both then and now, come from. Just a hint .... they were Democrats, slave owners, cross burners, hate mongers and tried to split the U.S. in two.

    "a very significant effect across the Atlantic"

    Shouldn't that be 'Pacific', what with Europe being in the way for them to be on the other side of the Atlantic...

    So a Russian agency (presumably) is spying on Russians, neighboring countries, along with the USA, etc.... Sounds like their version of 5-Eyes to me. Where's the surprise?

    The blame game

    It's always a lot easier to blame the Russkies. After it, it means you can claim "Oh it was the Russian NSA that done hackerified us".

    As opposed to the reality of "Our IT team couldn't find their own bums with two hands, a flashlight, a GPS system and a well trained sniffer dog".

      The deeper you go, the deeper it gets.

      Until you realise that no matter how deep you go, you'll never leave the rim.
