PARIS (AP) — The same Russian government-aligned hackers who penetrated the Democratic Party have spent the past few months laying the groundwork for an espionage campaign against the U.S. Senate, a cybersecurity firm said Friday.

The revelation suggests the group often nicknamed Fancy Bear, whose hacking campaign scrambled the 2016 U.S. electoral contest, is still busy trying to gather the emails of America’s political elite.

“They’re still very active — in making preparations at least — to influence public opinion again,” said Feike Hacquebord, a security researcher at Trend Micro Inc., which published the report . “They are looking for information they might leak later.”

The Senate Sergeant at Arms office, which is responsible for the upper house’s security, declined to comment.

Hacquebord said he based his report on the discovery of a clutch of suspicious-looking websites dressed up to look like the U.S. Senate’s internal email system. He then cross-referenced digital fingerprints associated with those sites to ones used almost exclusively by Fancy Bear, which his Tokyo-based firm dubs “Pawn Storm.”

Don't see anything wrong with this, same with the email link. Their motives might not be pure but the act of exposing the political elite an unveiling their true nature to the population is in itself a good thing.

Let's hope they tell us something good and juicy. These scumbags need a good closet-cleaning.

>when your only hope at shaking up the plutocrats is outside attacks from enemies

>when the citizens want their own government to sustain heavy damage and losses because that's how bad things are

Did you guys miss the election?
Russia selects which information to release based on what best serves the interests of their government.

The interests of the American people may be largely exclusive with those of their government, but they're totally exclusive with those of Russia's government.

Reminder that Mike Pence's email was hacked by the Russians before the election and Manafort went to extreme lengths to get Trump to pick Pence by lying to Trump about his plane being broken down while Trump was visiting with Pence, allowing him to get more time to sell himself to Trump.
