The Muller indictment of the Russian DNC hackers was different - the amount of detail revealed in the document stunned me, and suggests that the US had very deep visibility into the hackers’ operations. In this article I am not going to look at the details of the hacking or phishing attacks used. Rather, I am interested in how the hackers attempted to misattribute their activities and how their actions and errors undercut that effort.

Read the whole article at Security Week to see my analysis of all they ways the hackers failed in trying to remain hidden.
