Posted on 11/03/2017 12:18:00 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
WASHINGTON (AP) It was just before noon in Moscow on March 10, 2016, when the first volley of malicious messages hit the Hillary Clinton campaign.
The first 29 phishing emails were almost all misfires. Addressed to people who worked for Clinton during her first presidential run, the messages bounced back untouched.
Within nine days, some of the campaign's most consequential secrets would be in the hackers' hands, part of a massive operation aimed at vacuuming up millions of messages from thousands of inboxes across the world.

Editor's Note: Satter's father, David Satter, is an author and Russia specialist who has been critical of the Russian government. Several of his emails were published last year by hackers and his address is on Secureworks' list.
That’s not a hack, that’s an idiot falling for a phishing scheme
Fake News. It was Seth Rich, not the Russians.
Not that long of a read, unless one is mostly a Headline Drive-by Poster (like me, generally...).
Much detail in a timeline to be examined.
A story with no sources or facts. ok
Did the Russians put tens of thousands of confidential US Govt emails onto Anthony Wiener's laptop?
Hacking? Sounds more like Podesta was phished, ie, punked through sheer stupidity. And his emails ended up in “Russian-linked” hands whatever that means. Someone who “shares Russian interests?”
That’s where all the “Russian hacking” B/S started. No evidence whatsoever. Hillary had Russia on her brain because of her own dirty dealings with them. She probably figured they were double-crossing her.
The place is infested with them.
The Russians wanted Bernie elected.
This article reads like so much crap, I can almost hear the melodramatic music keying in the background. oh, fear! Oh, gloom and doom!
I didn’t know Seth Rich was Russian.
For one thing, they describe the Clinton campaign's digital security measures as "top-of-the-line." That itself is a joke.
Then they claim that some Russian operative claimed that he had 'thousands of emails' worth of dirt on Clinton, without any documented connection to the DNC or the Clinton campaign.
Lastly (and related to the previous point), they completely ignore the possibility that the "thousands" of emails about Clinton were actually hacked from her illegal unsecured home server, not the computer network of her campaign or the DNC.
It wasn’t a hack, it was a leak and his name was Seth Rich.
He was plugged.
It reads like cover - like oh, the Russians were TARGETING Democrats which meant they must be in colloosion with the dastardly Repubicans.
I believe Assange when he said the Russians DIDN'T DO IT. And Assange knows more about Seth Rich's murder than he is willing to admit.
This has to be one of the stupidest, most dishonest articles about the DNC and Clinton leaks.
From the article:
“The AP’s reconstruction based on a database of 19,000 malicious links recently shared by cybersecurity firm Secureworks shows how the hackers worked their way around the Clinton campaign’s top-of-the-line digital security to steal chairman John Podesta’s emails in March 2016.”
Podesta’s password was password.
Supposedly everyone in the office had it because Podesta would forget and he needed help to log on.
The article contains no evidence whatsoever. No sources for information. It just repeats what Democrat staffers said.
The FBI and the “intelligence community” never had access to the computers in question.
So when the story cites the FBI and “intelligence community” they are being dishonest.
