During and after the 2016 US elections allegations came up about Russia’s interference in the election process. The presidential elections gripped Washington, and multiple investigations kicked off into President Donald Trump’s campaign. In the process of the investigations, different concerns about the security of the electoral process and some fears that rival power could have influenced the results of the elections started coming up. The US retaliation against Russia was vivid in the sense that authorities swung into action to counter the claims of the attacks which were regarded as a cyber-attack crime. The investigations have prompted some officials and other former campaign advisors to plead guilty to having lied to the federal agents about communications between them and some Russian nationals. This paper will seek to review the cyber ethics and moral issues which revolved around the incident of Russia’s involvement in the 2016 US elections and the consequent retaliation by the US.
