FBI investigating reported Russian hacks that target New York Times journalists and others


The FBI is investigating what early reports say may be a coordinated series of Russian intelligence online security attacks targeting reporters at The New York Times. A U.S. official said Tuesday that the Times was among various U.S. news organizations targeted. CNN was first to report the story, and the Times has since confirmed some details, though individual NYT journalists on Twitter disputed others. To be hacked isn’t the same thing as being targeted, and it’s entirely possible that as usual, some of the security and general network technology details may have been lost in early translations.
