Press Germany: Russian hackers were able to access Merkel's email


The German magazine Der Spiegel comes out with material that talks about the activities of "Russian hackers" in relation to the highest political elites in Germany. The material stated that during one of the attacks allegedly committed in 2015, “Russian hackers” managed to copy the contents of two mailboxes, including the email of Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel.


From the material:

The digital attack was reconstructed by the German Federal Police and the Federal Information Security Administration (BSI). Departments established that at the disposal of hackers could be the correspondence of Angela Merkel in the period from 2012 to 2015.

Why the "reconstruction" took place only after 5 years, the magazine does not explain.

Additionally, it was “established” that the attackers gained access to the Bundestag IT systems, having received about 16 GB of data at their disposal.

It is noteworthy that the German government was not able to comment on the publication that the information systems of the country's parliament were hacked in order to gain access to data.

It should be noted that a few days earlier a warrant was issued in the Federal Republic of Germany for the arrest of Russian citizen Dmitry B. The German judicial system considers him to be involved in hacker attacks, additionally calling him a “GRU agent”. It turns out that this is the same man who was accused of "interfering in US elections in the United States." What, however, is the ubiquitous agent: he “managed to intervene” in the American elections, and Merkel “cracked” the correspondence.

There is an assumption that with this publication the German special services are trying to turn their attention from their own connivance when it turned out that the US special services had been tapping the phone of Angela Merkel for years. Then no one was punished. Now they decided to present a fable about the "Russian hackers."

    I’m just wondering if the Germans have degraded so much that they keep confidential correspondence by e-mail?
    They do not know that the SMTP protocol is insecure?
    Is the bear not alone in his madness with an iPhone?

      Well, if Trump gives orders on Twitter, then what is surprising about Vladimir? Their leaders in the West have repeatedly hacked mail and there were very interesting docks and correspondence .. Remember the scandal was all over the world .. They generally beguiled the shores .. All kinds of pranks play them, etc. ..
      They don’t understand clearly ..

      They again drive their wishes through the press. I personally know Dmitry B. and he’s not going to succumb to persuasion, just as he didn’t care about the American elections and the Bundestag, it remains - he’s not going to break anything.
      Let them try to interest them financially or something, I don’t know.

        Do you think the camera is installed? In general, I saw the grandmother of all Germany for the last time when she came to a supermarket for ordinary people for four bubbles of vinyl and toilet paper, in order to show that the coronavirus is completely harmless and most powerful with the people, then she went to quarantine, which have already expired for two weeks and so it has not been seen since for some reason.

            Okst, it’s not profitable for us, SP-2 is not completed yet. I hope it will be repaired.
            But in any case, I think that the Germans will pick up someone more frostbitten, in a bad sense of the word - like Ursula von der Leyen.

          Yes, everything is clear here. I remember how Merkel tried to go to the beach. There are small shaves with a camera. They caught her right in the locker room, the Germans were terribly offended then, well, nothing swallowed the pill. They probably regretted that our hackers were not at hand.

    Well yes. They waited a year, after last year's stunning news, about listening to Merkel and other European politicians, from the Anglo-Saxons. All this time, the Western media did not particularly promote this topic, and now they are trying to kill two birds with one stone - to "trample" that story and unleash new accusations against Russia. It is understandable, all independent media depend only on who pays!

      They do not know others, and if you find out and write, there will be no proper effect because no one knows them either.
      So you can at least name the President of Germany from memory? That's it laughing

    I have two questions - is there any institute of secure communication there? , and also what is the entrance courtyard of Frau Merkel’s office in her - do Americans listen, then Russian hackers break mail? Maybe the Germans should not complain about a bitter fate, and bring elementary order with special communications for the higher echelons of management?

    The Germans are probably spending billions of euros to ensure the security of their information systems. So where is the money, Zin?
    I can imagine how all the German newspapers came out with articles saying that their Fuhrer A. Hitler, having learned about the abduction of another Enigma, was very offended by the British and strengthened sanctions against them.

    The FSB breaks the NSA and they already carefully download, sorted by daddy (with comments) Merkel, Macron, Papa_Rimsky, etc.

    And this "pogrom" the Americans arranged to introduce new sanctions, traditionally high-likly Russians intervene in politics.

    What is the basis for the statement about the hand of Moscow in Merkel’s hack? If they are Americans, how is it not going to work out well? And if you blame the Russians, then you can also earn praise from the Americans

    Absolutes are not relevant. Grandma Merkel - big "haw doo doo doo ..."

    Let them construct a situation when the CIA spent the night in electronic documents to Frau Chancellor. Not only spent the night, but grazed when you want.

    Russian hackers were able to access Merkel’s email, but couldn’t read anything ... The general lack of knowledge of the German language in the ranks of Russian hackers stirred the German press
