  • The Democratic National Committee was hacked because of a single email. Subscribe to our channel! indictments against twelve Russian hackers give us a detailed account of just how they infiltrated the Democratic National Committee’s network. It started with a single spear phishing email; a personalized, targeted hacking attempt sent to an employee at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Once inside the DCCC network they were also able to gain access to the DNC using malware on employee’s computers. In 2016 the Russian hackers stole thousands of emails and sensitive documents — all because of one phishing email. It’s not just political organizations that are at risk: you’ll likely be targeted as well. And it’s getting harder and harder to spot a fake email or text message.

    no way he typo'd "illigitimate"
    if so then it would have been "an legitimate." which isn't grammatically correct however would be if it was a typo. so a bit skeptical about that.

    Hah! Vox changed the title from "How to not get phished by Russian hackers" to "How to not get phished (like the DNC)". I guess a vox employee mistitled the video? Vox never ceases to dissapoint me.
