Having said that, are the Russians infiltrating American citizen’s computers as well as ‘high value’ targets?

 

Kaspersky: ‘Equation Group’ attacked ‘high value targets’

America’s National Security Agency (NSA) has infected hard disk firmware with spyware in a campaign valued as highly as Stuxnet and dating back at least 14 years, and possibly up to two decades, according to an analysis by Kaspersky labs and subsequent reports.
