The AIVD was able to secretly monitor the Cozy Bear group-also known as APT29-and pass on evidence to US intelligence agencies that Russian hackers attacked the Democratic National Committee (DNC), Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant and current affairs show Nieuwsuur reported on Thursday, January 26.
De Volkskrant, who described the AIVD breach as a "fluke", reported that the Dutch hackers were also able to gain access to surveillance cameras within the Cozy Bear headquarters, allowing them to associate known Russian spies to the group.

Media reports from The Netherlands claim that hackers embedded within the Dutch intelligence agency AIVD watched Russian hackers attack the United States. for years. Given the purported existence of reams of pictures taken over the course of one to two years showing every person involved in hacking the DNC in 2015, it is unusual that no details have come out about precisely who was involved in the SVR intelligence unit (commonly known as either "Cozy Bear" or "APT 29" by security analysts). According to the report, later in the year, Russian hackers targeted the White House computer networks - the attack was also detected by the Dutch intelligence agency, which then informed United States authorities.
Volkskrant and Nieuwsuur said that the Dutch spies used their access to help oust Cozy Bear from US State Department computers in late 2014.
From those pictures, Dutch intelligence deduced that a Russian intelligence agency known as the SVR actually leads Cozy Bear.
