Story Seems Too Good To Be True

RNC Security Foiled Russian Hackers

Russian hackers tried to penetrate the computer networks of the Republican National Committee, using the same techniques that allowed them to infiltrate its Democratic counterpart, according to U.S. officials who have been briefed on the attempted intrusion.

But the intruders failed to get past security defenses on the RNC’s computer networks, the officials said.

It was noted that the effort seemed much less intensive and determined than the successful hacking of the DNC’s system.


  1. My guess is that Russia wanted to mess with the next president and make them look incompetent. Since everyone knew that Clinton was going to be the next president, that’s the one they focused on.

    Plus, half of the breach came from a phishing scam. Maybe Republicans are just smarter than Democrat politicians. I mean, seriously, who falls for phishing emails these days?
