Dutch Spies Exposed Russian Hackers in US Election Meddling”

Local media outlets report that the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service were watching the Russian group, known as Cozy Bear, for at least a year and both hacked the group's computers and caught hackers on camera.

However, before this incident happened, officials from Dutch intelligence agency "AIVD" had intercepted the hacking group and warned American officials about the threat, according to Reuters.

According to de Volkskrant, AIVD penetrated Cozy Bear and gained access to everything ranging from computer networks to closed-circuit television cameras.

Commenting on the growing number of foreign states' accusations of alleged attempts by Moscow to "undermine democracy", Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has called the claims ridiculous, emphasizing that there was no proof that Russian Federation was involved in the election processes of the United States, Germany, France, or the United Kingdom.

He then re-signed with the Patriots, but only appeared in two games before being placed on season-ending injured reserve. Offensive lineman LaAdrian Waddle and running back Mike Gillislee missed part of practice for the third day in a row.

AIVD agents monitored the group's headquarters between 2014 and 2017, and it allegedly passed information to the CIA and US National Security Agency warning them about potential attacks on American government organisations.

"The Dutch newspapers are only further fueling anti-Russian hysteria, which is taking place in the United States - it's not a very noble activity".

One of the claims made is that the Dutch counter-hackers were able to infiltrate a Russian cybergang known as Cozy Bear and keep an eye on them.

Pictures obtained from the security cameras, led the AIVD to conclude that Cozy Bear is directed by Russia's external intelligence agency, the SVR.

Cozy Bear has been widely blamed for meddling in the 2016 USA elections won by now President Donald Trump. For years, it supplies them with valuable intelligence about targets, methods and the interests of the highest ranking officials of the Russian security service. The massive attack took around 24 hours to mitigate. An information and technology sharing arrangement with the National Security Agency and other United States intelligence agencies resulted in the determination that Cozy Bear's efforts were at least in part being driven by the Russian Federation's leadership-including Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Hacker groups frequently change their methods and even a different firewall can cut off access", the report said.

Members of the Netherlands' AIVD intelligence agency infiltrated the headquarters of the Russian hacking collective Cozy Bear, newspaper de Volksrant reported Thursday night.

Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov dismissed the Dutch reports on Friday, denouncing them as unreliable.
