US Government hacks into Russian networks

It seems that cyber attack war between US and Russia is not going to end soon. It is reported that now US government has "penetrated" Russia’s power grids, telecommunications networks, and the Kremlin's command systems.

According to the ministry's website, “If no official reaction from the American administration follows, it would mean state cyberterrorism exists in the US. If the threats of the attack, which were published by the US media, are carried out, Moscow would be justified in charging Washington,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova.

An anonymous senior intelligence official said that US military hackers have hacked into Russia's crucial infrastructure, “making them vulnerable to attack by secret American cyberweapons should the US deem it necessary.”

It is not the first time when US government has infiltrated critical online infrastructure of other nations. However, the US has always accused Russia and China of disrupting and infiltrating into crucial systems.

Moreover, US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has made strong  allegations against  Moscow in hacking and damaging her image, and it has become one of the most important  issue in the ongoing US election campaign. Though there is no proof of her and her party's claims. According to her  Russia had supplied the hacked emails that were published by WikiLeaks.

American private investigator and writer Charles Ortel told RT, “Hillary is a master. Back in the days when her husband was under threat, she suggested that there was a vast right-wing conspiracy. Now there is supposed to be a vast crazy conspiracy involving the FBI and Russia. It’s just fantasy land to me.”
