Russian hackers break into computers and use them to create a large number of accounts
Russia changes strategy and preparing for intervention in the US presidential election of 2020.
Russian Internet trolls are spreading politically provocative messages via fake accounts in social networks. This writes Bloomberg, citing experts on cyber security.
According to a senior researcher at Symantec Corp candy will Wuest, Russian hackers break into computers and use them to create a large number of accounts in social networks that look like the real thing, and most likely followers and “likes” for these fakes.
Despite the obviousness of this approach, hackers and trolls use it before the next presidential election in the United States.
According to Wuest, the experts record the reduction in the number of cases, the creation of new content with the help of fake accounts and the transition to a mass of followers, which could be used to distribute messages intended to split the society during the elections in 2020.
