Over the past year Germany has repulsed two cyberattacks of the Russian hacker group APT28, also known as the Fancy Bear. This group, according to experts, attacked the servers of the Democratic Party during the presidential elections in the United States.
This was reported by the Reuters agency, citing the president of the Federal Office for Information Security Arne Schönbohm.
One of the attacks occurred in May 2016 and was directed against the servers of the Christian Democratic Union, the party of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. The second attack was an attempt to hack the databases of parties of the lower house of the Bundestag.
It is reported that hackers used the domain name of NATO when trying to introduce harmful software.
