U.K. INVESTIGAT­ORS PROBE RUSSIAN ACCESS TO FACEBOOK DATA

-

British authoritie­s looking into inappropri­ate use of data gathered by political consultant Cambridge Analytica from millions of Facebook users say some of the systems that accessed the material appear to be in Russia or a group of former Soviet states. The Informatio­n Commission­er’s Office, which is investigat­ing data analytics by political campaigns, says in a statement Wednesday that “some of the systems linked to the investigat­ion were accessed from IP addresses that appear to resolve to Russia and other areas of the (Commonweal­th of Independen­t States.)” Cambridge Analytica whistleblo­wer Christophe­r Wylie, pictured, has said he feared that the data may have been turned over to Russians who aimed to interfere with the U.S. election.
