U.S. Indicts Seven Russian Officers for Hacking Antidrug Agencies

Russian intelligence officers brazenly launched cyberattacks on investigators pursuing Russian malfeasance around the globe, Western officials said, offering a litany of victims including antidoping agencies, inspectors scrutinizing the poisoning of a former spy in Britain and others examining the downing of a passenger jet in 2014. The Justice Department indicted seven Russian officers on charges of trying to hack into antidrug agencies in the United States, Canada and Europe, an apparent effort to undermine their pursuit of Russian doping.
