Cyber Attack on Trump Organization!


Early this morning, ABC News reported that a cyber attack was launched on Trump Organization early this month which is now being probed by FBI. The news is out that a foreign nation launched a cyber attack on May 8th on Trump’s family owned real estate business. But the news resource is not yet ready to disclose the name of the nation which was behind the attack.

Eric Trump, Executive Vice President of Trump Family real estate business along with Donald Junior were questioned by FBI on May 12th,2017 in this regard. When ABC reporters approached Donald Junior to comment, he neither declined or confirmed the details of the hack.

But our sources report that both the legal heirs of the business visited FBI’s New York Headquarters 2 times to discuss the attempted hack in the last couple of weeks.

A close aide to Eric Trump said that the attempted hack happened the day before the US President abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey.

Note- Trump Organization is a privately owned international conglomerate based in Trump Tower of Manhattan, New York. The company was founded in 1923 by Trump’s grandmother and father who named the business as Elizabeth Trump & Son. Trump took over the business and ran the business from 1971 to 2017 after naming it as Trump Organization. After Trump got elected as the 45th President of United States, he announced that his two oldest sons named Donald Trump Jr ad Eric Trump will take over the business empire.

From past few weeks, Trump and his administration are facing a lot of negativity from a handful of media resources.

First, it was about Russia’s interference in the US 2016 Polls, then about a few executive orders issued by Mr. Trump and now the latest controversy is on Trump leaking some critical political details to Russia.

So, is the latest news reported by ABC of such kind….? Was the report fabricated to just start a commotion in the media world….?

Will Trump ever react to this news….?

Because if he does, then he has to give an answer to each and every question raised by the media like who launched the attack?;  what was the motive behind the attack?; how much data was breached?;  Was it critical for business or personal;…and such….

Well, only time can give a better answer to all these questions……isn’t it?
