Kremlin dismisses reports of fresh Russian cyberattacks

The Kremlin dismisses new reports that Russia is targeting US political groups through cyberattacks ahead of midterm elections.

Microsoft said earlier Tuesday that it’s uncovered new intrusions by Russian government-linked hackers on US political groups. It said one group created fake internet domains that appeared to spoof two American conservative organizations.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov denies the allegations and says that Microsoft’s statement lacks detail and it wasn’t clear “who the hackers in question are” and how they could distort the US electoral system.

Microsoft says there is no evidence that the hackers were successful.
