It outlines the tools used by Russian civilian and military intelligence services to “compromise and exploit networks and endpoints associated with the U.S. election, as well as a range of U.S. Government, political, and private sector entities.”

Despite not mentioning them by name, the document does make clear reference to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta as victims of the hacking.
