Report suggests Russian Federation hackers breached voting software firm

Victor was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at her home in Augusta, Georgia on Saturday. She was charged on Monday.

"Releasing classified material without authorization threatens our nation's security and undermines public faith in government", Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in a statement Monday. "People who are trusted with classified information and pledge to protect it must be held accountable when they violate that obligation." .

Three weeks later the scribes gave United States officials a copy of the files it had received for them to confirm their authenticity and for comment.

The new material does not, however, suggest that actual votes were manipulated. Approximately a few days later, victor unlawfully transmitted by mail the intelligence reporting to an online news outlet.

That was, we're told, enough to raise suspicion.

Classified documents are typically due to be declassified after 25 years under an executive order signed under former President Bill Clinton. "She's expressed to me that she's not a fan of Trump, but she's not someone that goes and riots and pickets or stuff". "On a positive note, this Tuesday when we become the United States of the Russian Federation, Olympic lifting will be the national sport", the blue-eyed Texas-born blonde joked days before November's presidential election.

The report itself doesn't offer raw intelligence, The Intercept said, but analyzes intelligence the NSA recently acquired.

But Ms Sturgeon needs the permission of the United Kingdom government for a legally-binding vote to be held. "Labour firmly oppose a second independence referendum", a spokesman said.

So what's the fuss all about?

The classified National Security Agency report, which was published online by The Intercept, does not say whether the hacking had any effect on election results.

The date on Winner's suspected mailing was five days after the date stamped on the NSA report.

Victor was arrested Saturday and the case was revealed Monday, shortly after the website the Intercept posted a redacted version of a U.S. intelligence document describing Russian government efforts to use hacking techniques against employees of a company that provides technical support to states' voting agencies. The report, dated May 5, 2017, is the most detailed US government account of Russian interference in the election that has yet come to light. The emails were packed with hidden malware in Microsoft Word documents. The test emails appeared to be sent to accounts that appeared to be associated with American Samoa's Election Office.

The Intercept co-founding editor, Glenn Greenwald, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

But he said last week that "patriotically minded" Russians, whom he compared to artists, might have taken it upon themselves "to fight against those who say bad things about Russia", according to The New York Times, which was present at his news conference with Russian and foreign outlets in St. Petersburg on Thursday.

"That makes it a very hard security problem".
