The Washington Post claim that the Russian government hackers who breached a top cybersecurity firm are behind a global espionage campaign that also compromised the Treasury and Commerce departments and other government agencies, according to “people familiar with the matter”, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.
