Russian hackers attacked US State Department in 2014

Washington Post:
‘It was hand-to-hand combat’: New details emerge about 2014 Russian hack of the State Department

One official described the attackers’ thrust-and-parry moves inside the network while defenders were trying to kick them out. Others fear the aggressive espionage tactics could spill over into the private sector.
It is kind of funny, that the Obama administration did not make much of a deal about the cyber attack of the State Department.  It clearly seemed to be of less import to them than the less dangerous hacks of the DNC and Podesta emails.   As for spilling over to the private sector, by that time it had already happened with attacks on US banks and other institutions.
