Russian GRU-connected Fancy Bear hacking group targets International Olympic Committee
On January 10, 2018, as reported by The New York Times, Russian military intelligency agency (GRU)-connected hacker group Fancy Bear, or APT28, leaked reportedly stolen correspondence from 2016 and 2017 between International Olympic Committee (IOC) and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officials regarding the decision to ban Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympics. A post on Fancy Bear’s website read “the genuine intentions of the coalition headed by the Anglo-Saxons are much less noble than a war against doping.”
