Hundreds Of Trump Web Domains Are Communicating With Russia And Are Sharing “Weird” Files

What is it with Donald Trump and Russians? I say that because the latest Russian connection has something in the region of 250 web domains that are owned by the Trump Organization have hidden connections that route through Russia for reasons that nobody understands. Here’s what Engadget had to say on this:

A new report from researchers at Unhack The Vote alleges that Donald Trump’s various web properties could hold a clue as to the President’s communication ties with Russia, and the evidence is quite substantial.

The report, which cites over 250 different subdomains belonging to the Trump organization, reveals that the web properties have hidden connections to servers that route through Russia — more specifically, through St. Petersburg. What’s most interesting is that these subdomains are named and cataloged in such a way as to avoid the chances that any random web user might accidentally stumble upon them.

If that’s not weird enough, it gets weirder:

On top of the strange communication with Russian servers, the researchers discovered what appears to be records of some extremely shady files. Filenames like “l0v3LYg1rLS0nlY4y0U.html1.zip” — which, if you’re not well versed in 1999 internet neckbeard leetspeak, means “lovely girls only 4 you” — or “gR33TpUsSY4Tth1SwE3k.html1.zip” (Great pussy for T this weekend), appear multiple times in the servers’ records. The full report is obviously well worth a read.

This is all very strange.

So the question is this…. Have these domains been pwned by hackers? If so, why hasn’t the Trump Organization’s IT department shut this down? Or is something else going on that Special Counsel Robert Muller might want to have a look at because it might tie into his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election? Either way, someone needs to answer some questions on this because on the surface, this clearly raises some red flags.
