Four years ago, well before the furor over allegations Moscow meddled in the 2016 election that put Donald Trump in the White House, at least 195 web addresses belonging to Trump, his family or his business empire were hijacked by hackers possibly operating out of Russia, the Associated Press has learned. The Trump Organization denied the domain names were ever compromised. But a review of internet records by the AP and cybersecurity experts shows otherwise. Many of the addresses were not being used by Trump.According to security experts, the hackers hijacked the addresses by penetrating and altering the domain registration records housed at GoDaddy.com, a web address seller.Computer users who entered or clicked on one of those Trump addresses probably would have had no idea that they were redirected to servers in Russia.There was no evidence the hackers ultimately broke into server computers at the Trump Organization or other Trump interests.
