Iran-linked hacking group said to target Trump 2020 campaign

[Ed. – Would that be a good thing or a bad thing? Hard to know what The Narrative would have us think at this point.]

A hacking group that appears to be linked to the Iranian government attempted to break into U.S. President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign but were unsuccessful, sources familiar with the operation told Reuters on Friday.

Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) said earlier on Friday in a blog post bit.ly/2ngs5bZ that it saw “significant” cyber activity by the group which also targeted current and former U.S. government officials, journalists covering global politics and prominent Iranians living outside Iran. …

In a 30-day period between August and September, the group, dubbed “Phosphorous” by Microsoft, made more than 2,700 attempts to identify consumer email accounts belonging to specific customers and then attacked 241 of those accounts.
