Doping: WADA urges athletes to check accuracy of hacked data (Reuters)
(Reuters) – The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said on Wednesday that some of the athlete data leaked by a Russian cyber espionage group has been changed from its initial form, and has asked “affected parties” for feedback on any inaccuracies. Since the hacking group first released confidential medical data on Sept. 13, it has released five more batches involving athletes from countries including the United States, Germany, Britain, Poland and Denmark who competed at the Rio Olympics. The hacking group, known as APT28 and Fancy Bear by U.S. cyber-security researchers, has posted data about athletes such as U.S. gymnast Simone Biles, U.S. tennis players Serena and Venus Williams and England’s Olympic golf champion Justin Rose.
