WORDPRESS SECURITY SERVICE USED BY MILLIONS SAYS THERE IS “NO PROOF OF RUSSIAN ELECTION HACK” IN DHS REPORT

On Friday we published research into the FBI/DHS report that many are viewing as proof of a US 2016 election hack by Russia.
 
Specifically we showed that a malware sample in the report is old, possibly of Ukrainian origin, an administrative tool for a hacker and is freely available.
 
We also analyzed the IP addresses that FBI and DHS provided and showed that they are in over 60 countries and belong to over 300 organizations with no clear Russian link. 
 
Many of you have commented and have questions. Tonight we are publishing an FAQ that makes it clear what WordPress and Wordfence users need to know about the election hack data and our report.
