Regardless of all inter-party disagreements, there is a strategic consensus of elites in the United States on the fact that no one in the world must be able to question the absolute American hegemony. Russia did.
What were the other “surprises” for the American intelligence agencies from the Russian “electronic intelligence”?
A new quiet, but very alarming for the American elites, scandal erupted in the USA in the end of October 2014.
On October 28, 2014 FireEye, Inc. that has been conducting cyber security research and developing cyber attack protection under contractual agreements with the intelligence community of the USA released its next report. The report “APT 28: A Window into Russia’s Cyber Espionage Operations?” states that one of the main threats to the cyber security of the USA is posed by a group of hackers that began its activities as far back as 2007. FireEye calls this group “ Advanced Persistent Threat 28” and considers it particularly dangerous as it mostly collects vital classified geopolitical and strategic military information.
