Scholars, infosec experts call for action on Russian hacking
In the wake of reports about Russian involvement in fake news and hacks against political targets leading up to the recent presidential election, scholars and security experts are calling for federal action.
As of Sunday, 158 scholars have signed an open letter calling for a congressional investigation.
“Our country needs a thorough, public Congressional investigation into the role that foreign powers played in the months leading up to November,” the letter said.
Democrats in Congress have also called for an investigation, and were recently joined by Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.
