U.S. TREASURY, COMMERCE DEPARTMENT, AND OTHERS ALLEGEDLY HACKED: MSM BLAMES RUSSIA – South Front

On December 13th, a “sophisticated hacking group backed by a foreign government” allegedly carried out a cyber attack and stole information from the U.S. Treasury Department and a U.S. agency responsible for deciding policy around the internet and telecommunications.

This was initially reported by Reuters, citing unnamed sources.

In a separate report, the Washington Post reported that not only had the US Treasury been subjected to a hacker attack, but also the US Department of Commerce, in addition to other government agencies.

This was a part of a “global espionage campaign that stretches back months,” and was allegedly carried out by the Russian government.

The report is based on claims by unnamed individuals “familiar with the matter.”
