It is still not yet clear, but it is alleged that Russia could be behind the US attack and the officials are not sure of the severity of the damages yet.

A Security expert Costin Raiu has noted that a copy of a relatively sophisticated malware that appeared to be a unique combination of existing hacking tools that had no obvious connections to any known hacking teams was uploaded to a research repository.

It was noted that the intruders used compromised logins to implant malware and to get access to the agency’s network, using that to steal files.
