Russian hacking that aim to influence the elections results in “key” European countries will continue at least until 2018. This was reported by English-language international newspaper the Wall Street Journal, referring officials in Barack Obama’s Presidential Administration.
This is about upcoming elections in Netherlands, France and Germany, according to the newspaper.
Russia has been exercising cyberattacks and spreading false information in Europe aiming to weaken countries “that the Kremlin sees as political rivals” for the last two years, interlocutors of the daily noted.
Earlier hackers working on the US military entered the Russian telecommunications and electronic systems, including the Kremlin system, making them vulnerable to attack by the secret cyber weapon in case of need.
