REPORT: Even North Korea Attempted To Hack Clinton Campaign Emails

Looks like the ‘Russians’ weren’t the only ones to supposedly target Hillary Clinton’s emails during the 2016 election, North Korea was also after them.

The Daily Caller reported:

North Korean hackers attempted to infiltrate the Hillary Clinton campaign’s email systems, according to a report circulated within the campaign last year.

That’s according to an interesting report published by CyberScoop, a cybersecurity website.

According to CyberScoop, North Korea’s Reconnaissance General Bureau (RGB) attempted to break into Clinton campaign systems by targeting a group of outside advisers working on East Asia policy for the campaign.

Using an attack method known as spearphishing, which attempts to wrangle users’ passwords, the hackers were able to infiltrate the email accounts of outside Clinton campaign advisers who work for an unnamed Washington, D.C. think tank.

The goal of the hacking campaign was to obtain policy papers regarding the campaign’s stances towards North Korea, CyberScoop reports.

The hackers did not breach the Clinton campaign’s computers or email accounts, according to the internal report, which was obtained by CyberScoop. But cyber experts working for the campaign did find that hackers created a spoof email account using a email address to contact the advisers who were hacked.

The timing of the report is likely to raise questions about the Clinton campaign’s internal security measures.

What was on those servers and among those 33,000 emails?

Something very damning must have been there for her to use bleach bit to destroy the emails and then use hammers to smash devices!
