China/Russia collecting info to manipulate American officials

A US official reports that both China and Russia are collecting confidential data stolen in cyber attacks from websites (like Ashley Madison and the US Office of Personnel Management) to manipulate, threaten, blackmail government officials, including intelligence officers, into giving their nations American information.

I bet we are doing the same in both China and Russia and probably in other countries as well.Read more about it here http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/01/politics/china-russia-cyberattacks-military/index.html
