Clinton campaign accuses FBI of ‘blatant double standard’

Hillary Clinton's campaign accused FBI Director James Comey Monday of engaging in a "blatant double standard."

Clinton's campaign manager Robby Mook slammed Comey in the wake of reports that the FBI director refused to publicly comment on potential Donald Trump campaign ties to Russia's alleged efforts to meddle with the US election, but did weigh in on an updated investigation involving Clinton's email server.

"It is impossible to view this as anything less than a blatant double standard," Mook, Clinton's campaign manager, said on a call with reporters. "That Director Comey would show more discretion in a matter concerning a foreign state action than one involving the Democratic nominee for president is nothing short of jaw-dropping."

Russian ‘Fancy Bear’ hackers targeted BBC election broadcasts

Russian hackers Fancy Bear have been foiled in an attempt to attack BBC election coverage as well as government websites by experts at GCHQ.

The Kremlin-backed hackers planned to disrupt the BBC's election coverage as well as taking down the websites belonging to several government departments.

Last year, Russian hackers posing as ISIS managed to crash 11 French TV stations in a major cyber attack.

Analysts at GCHQ were able to track back the attack on TV5Monde to Russia and started observing them to see if they were trying to hijack British websites.

The group is believed to be behind a string of high-profile cyber attacks, including leaking 20,000 emails from the US Democratic Party as well as drug test records of a host of Olympians.

According to the Sunday Times, cyber-security experts at GCHQ advised several major media organisations .

Chris Porter, manager of cyber-security firm FireEye told the newspaper: 'The ultimate sponsor is the Russian government. Most of the targeting they do is consistent with the requirements of the Russian ministry of defence.'

Mr Porter said the Fancy Bears operate mostly during business hours in Moscow and most of its bugs and meta data are written in the Russian language.

The group has even tried to hack Nato computers.
