U.S. intelligence authorities announced today that they are confident that the Russian government helped orchestrate cyber attacks on American political organizations earlier this year.

The Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Election Security said that the online disclosures in WikiLeaks and DCLeaks, as well as the Guccifer 2.0 profile, are consistent with strategies that Moscow has employed in the past. 

DHS continues to urge state and local election officials to be vigilant and seek cybersecurity assistance from DHS.
