‘Rus­sia could hack foot­ball fans’ de­vices’

New Straits Times - - WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON: A top in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cial warned peo­ple go­ing to Rus­sia for the World Cup that their phones and com­put­ers could be hacked by Moscow’s cy­ber spies. Wil­liam Evan­ina, direc­tor of the Na­tional Coun­ter­in­tel­li­gence and Se­cu­rity Cen­tre, said even peo­ple who be­lieved they were too unim­por­tant to be hacked could be tar­geted. He said those plan­ning to take elec­tronic de­vices should be aware that their data, es­pe­cially per­sonal in­for­ma­tion, might be ac­cessed by the Rus­sian gov­ern­ment or cy­ber crim­i­nals.
