Russians hack energy company that played major role in Trump Ukraine scandal

Biden, his Burisma job and his father, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, were becoming the center of political talk in the USA, the Times reported.

Russian agents launched a phishing campaign in early November aimed at stealing the login credentials for employees of Burisma Holdings, the gas company, according to Area 1 Security, a Silicon Valley company that specializes in email security.

Russian military hackers tried to steal emails from the Ukrainian energy firm where Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden, had a seat on the board, a US cybersecurity firm said on Monday.

The New York Times first reportedabout Area 1's conclusions and the alleged hack.

USA allies in Europe and Ukraine's worldwide lenders supported Joe Biden because successive chief prosecutors were believed to have been either obstructing or stalling investigations into high-profile corruption cases, including probes into Burisma.

"Area 1 Security has also further connected this GRU phishing campaign to another phishing campaign targeting a media organization founded" by Zelensky, the report said. In the Burisma case, hackers sent emails to company employees instructing them to log in on fake websites created to look pages for the company's subsidiaries. Breaching Burisma could yield communications from, to, or about Hunter Biden, who served as a director between 2014 and 2019.

SportsBeat KC: The craziest victory in Chiefs playoff history keeps hope alive
The Chiefs came back for a 51-31 win in the divisional round, overcoming an early deficit with 41 unanswered points. Chiefs fans here in Wichita packed into Chicken and Pickle decked in their gear to watch the game.

Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to "look into" allegations of wrongdoing by the Bidens and the energy firm in a July 25 phone call.

Area 1 says it also linked the GRU phishing campaign against Burisma to another phishing attack targeting a company founded by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky - whose conversation with Trump last summer sparked calls to impeach the US president. 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.

According to a report from the New York Times, the Russian government's cyber warfare campaign against the Ukraine coincides with a boots-on-the-ground effort by Kremlin spies.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi - after announcing tomorrow's vote to send articles of impeachment to the Senate - ripped President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for not doing enough on election security.

Area 1 said its researchers connected the phishing campaign targeting Burisma to an effort earlier previous year that targeted Kvartal 95, a media organization founded by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy. There, unwitting victims enter their usernames and passwords, which the hackers then harvest. Trump is seeking reelection and Biden is a potential opponent out of a dozen Democrats seeking their party's nomination. "Now we know that Vladimir Putin also sees Joe Biden as a threat. Any American president who had not repeatedly encouraged foreign interventions of this kind would immediately condemn this attack on the sovereignty of our elections", Biden spokesman Andrew Bates said.
