Russian hackers attack German ministries

Mar 01, 2018 - The Daily Telegraph (London)

The Russian hacking group known as APT28 has attacked Germany's foreign and defence ministries and acquired data from them, German media reported last night.

Western governments and security experts have linked the hacking group known as APT28 or Fancy Bear to a Russian spy agency, and have blamed it for previous operations including an attack on the Democratic National Committee ahead of the 2016 US elections and on the German lower house of parliament in 2015.
