The FBI has disrupted a network of half a million routers compromised by the group of Russian hackers believed to have penetrated the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign during the 2016 elections, according to reports. The hacker group, known as "Fancy Bear," has been using a malware program called "VPN Filter" to compromise home and small office routers and NAS devices. VPN Filter is "particularly concerning" because components of the malware can be used for the theft of website credentials and to target industrial system protocols.

The proof the FBI released regarding the Russian hackers is a fake. Each and every IP they’ve shown had less than 5% leading to any Russia collusion whatsoever. The majority was to many other countries with the main coming from EU.
No one hacked the DNC, it was proven. Collusion was done outright by DNC and Russia and the current administration is bringing it to light.
I am embarrassed and angry that I was ever a Democrat and we now know the FBI lies and still lie out of their butt.
Factual evidence says it all and so far false opinion has been the only scientific insight we have had. Enough said.

Remember the opening scene to Rocky 4? The Russian and American gloves hitting each other etc... I dont think we should be so quick to believe this propaganda. They use the same tactics over and over to build hatred of people we really dont know anything about. All we know as what they tell us and what they want us to know
