MICROSOFT SAYS, PUTIN tries to hack US SENATE








The Fancy Bear, Russia's cybergroup operating 6 controlled websites targetting political field in the United States of America, tries to hack the US Senate, Microsoft said. The same group allegedly meddled in their last Presidential election where Donald Trump was elected. 





This Russian military intelligence has become the brain of launching cyber attacks in the US elections including domains of "senate.group," and "adfs-senate.email."

The attack known as spearphishing, was successfully used to target Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta in 2016.




In lieu of this current online aggression and threats, Microsoft will be launching a specialized cybersecurity protection service called AccountGuard.
