Hackers Fancy Bear tried to break into the computer systems of the U.S. Senate – the experts

The hacker group Fancy Bear, which is suspected of ties with Russia, pursued a long-running operation to gain access to the correspondence of the staff of the U.S. Senate. This is stated in the report of the cyber security company Trend Micro on January 12.

It is noted that from June 2017 cybercriminals had created a false website with the login server in the electronic system of the Senate, hoping to trick the servants of the legislature to submit your information.

Official page of the Senate is not in the public domain and works only via the internal network.

Fancy Bear is suspected of cyber attacks on various institutions in different countries and in cooperation with the Main intelligence Directorate of Russia.

In October 2016, the U.S. government has formally accused Russia of hacking into the servers of American parties.
