Most observers finger Russian intelligence services in the long-running, long-investigated hacks of the US State Department and White House, but the White House itself declines any attribution as "not in our interest." (Diplomatic observers nonetheless see the US Administration dog-whistling an "I-know-what-you're-doing-online" warning in the direction of Moscow.) Russia officially denies any involvement, loyally seconded by the hardly disinterested journalists of Sputnik, who cite Kaspersky researchers on the virtual impossibility of attributing hacks to nations. (In fairness to Kaspersky, the company has long been very reticent with respect to attribution.) The White House says that, while no classified information was stolen, "sensitive" material was compromised.
