Russians hacked company key to Ukraine scandal

  • Joe and Hunter Biden

Any relationship between former Vice President Joe Biden, his son and the Ukrainian gas company Burisma has become a central figure in the 2020 election campaign and the impeachment of Donald Trump.

The big picture: Experts tell the Times the hackers may have been searching for embarrassing information about the Bidens, though it's not yet known what - if anything - they uncovered.

President Trump is now due to stand trail in the Senate on two articles of impeachment - abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

"Our report doesn't make any claims as to what the intent of the hackers were, what they might have been looking for, what they are going to do with their success".

Oren Falkowitz, a co-founder of Area 1 and a former employee of the National Security Administration and United States Cyber Command, told the newspaper that "the attacks were successful". Nor would he name any clients.

U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee and has been a key figure in Trump's impeachment, said the alleged hacking shows that Russian Federation was still interested in interfering with U.S. elections. This is indeed exactly what Bob Mueller warned about in his testimony: "That the Russians would be at this again", Schiff said on MSNBC Monday night, referring to the special counsel who investigated Russia's attempts to interfere in the 2016 election and whether there was any coordination with the Trump campaign.

Area 1 Security said in its report that the phishing campaign allegedly carried out by the GRU was created to steal email credentials and passwords of employees at Burisma Holdings, as well as its subsidiaries and partners. He said he followed the industry standard process of responsible disclosure, which would include notifying Burisma.

"The story goes on note that this latest hack, which used phishing emails to trick Burisma officials into revealing their internal usernames and passwords, is" strikingly similar" in tactics to the March 2016 attack perpetrated by the GRU against the DNC, which unearthed a massive trove of emails from candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta. Russian Federation and its purported cyber-geeks have been blamed, without proof, for interfering in the U.S. presidential election, meddling in Brexit, the Catalonia independence vote and numerous other political processes around the globe.

"This is a real specific, timely case that has real implications", he said.

In July, the U.S. Federal Elections Commission gave Area 1 permission to offer its services to candidates for federal elected office and political committees at the same low rates it charges non-profits.

Area 1 said its researchers connected the phishing campaign targeting Burisma to another that targeted a media organization founded by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The hackers infiltrated Burisma through phishing emails that looked to have come from within to company to steal employees' login information.
