“Someone has your password.” How Hillary Clinton’s team bit into an email hack
Unit 26165 was housed in buildings that were owned by the Ministry of Defense and had once been part of a vast complex from the early 19th century, situated on the grounds of a former textile factory in central Moscow. It was accessed through an inconspicuous door on Komsomolsky Prospekt, under a large yellow stone archway with a strange outlet facing the street. During the cold war, unit 26165, then known as the 85th Main Center of the GRU Special Service [el servicio de inteligencia militar de las Fuerzas Armadas rusas], was specialized in deciphering. By the mid-2000s, the unit had expanded to include computer network intrusion, in other words, the hack.
