Russia says Germany has not provided any evidence of Bundestag hack

Earlier this week, I linked to an item stating that Germany is urging its fellow European Union governments to impose the bloc’s first-ever sanctions for hacking. The incident involved Dmitri Badin, a Russian suspect in the 2015 cyberattack on the German parliament.

Catalin Cimpanu subsequently reported:

Russian officials said this week that German authorities have failed to produce the evidence that Russian military hackers breached the German Parliament in 2015.

The statement is in relation to an arrest warrant that Germany filed at the end of May, when they charged a Russian hacker named Dmitriy Sergeyevich Badin.

German prosecutors said Badin was a member of a hacking group named APT28 (Fancy Bear, Sofacy, Strontium, Grizzly Steppe), which breached the German Parliament (Bundestag) in the first half of 2015, where he installed malware and stole government documents.
