Wyden and Klobuchar press FBI for answers about Russian attack on Florida company

Wyden and Klobuchar press FBI for answers about Russian attack on Florida company (Govt., Critical Infrastructure)

But the bureau has so far refused to answer questions from POLITICO and others about VR Systems, including whether it conducted any forensic investigation of the company’s network in 2016 after VR Systems reported the spearphishing campaign to it. VR Systems has never responded to questions from POLITICO about whether the FBI conducted a forensic investigation of its systems and network in 2016 or if, at the very least, the bureau obtained mirror images of its hard drives to preserve for a later forensic investigation if needed. But POLITICO recently learned that FBI agents did visit VR Systems offices in 2016 after the company reported the spearphishing campaign to it, according to someone familiar with the issue. North Carolina officials didn’t ask the company to clarify if that meant the FBI did a forensic investigation or merely took a cursory look at the systems, the person told POLITICO.
