It seems as if the FBI has uncovered roof election databases have been hacked in Arizona and Illinois. This is a huge problem and one of serious magnitude if the FBI is releasing this information.
So sick of this election. ALL of it is rigged. America cannot stand for this. We need to take action no matter our political views. Time to come together and fight for what is right.
If the FBI are talking about it, it means it’s not good for Hillary Clinton. How about every state goes back to hand counted paper ballots? But then she couldn’t steal the election, could she? This shows how incompetent cyber-intelligence we have and bet you they haven’t figured yet how deep the hack went.
From Yahoo News:
The FBI has uncovered evidence that foreign hackers penetrated two state election databases in recent weeks, prompting the bureau to warn election officials across the country to take new steps to enhance the security of their computer systems, according to federal and state law enforcement officials.
The FBI warning, contained in a “flash” alert from the FBI’s Cyber Division, a copy of which was obtained by Yahoo News, comes amid heightened concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about the possibility of cyberintrusions, potentially by Russian state-sponsored hackers, aimed at disrupting the November elections.
Those concerns prompted Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to convene a conference call with state election officials on Aug. 15, in which he offered his department’s help to make state voting systems more secure, including providing federal cybersecurity experts to scan for vulnerabilities,according to a “readout” of the call released by the department.
Johnson emphasized in the call that Homeland Security was not aware of “specific or credible cybersecurity threats” to the election, officials said. But three days after that call, the FBI Cyber Division issued a potentially more disturbing warning, titled “Targeting Activity Against State Board of Election Systems.” The alert, labeled as restricted for “NEED TO KNOW recipients,” disclosed that the bureau was investigating cyberintrusions against two state election websites this summer, including one that resulted in the “exfiltration,” or theft, of voter registration data. “It was an eye opener,” a senior law enforcement official said of the bureau’s discovery of the intrusions. “We believe it’s kind of serious, and we’re investigating.”
Why is there no strict guideline for every state-owned database system, are they even encrypted? Why are state election databases even connected to the internet? I can personally tell you the majority of state-ran systems are easily penetrable, and that does nothing but put everyone at risk.
The best way to keep any system hack free is to keep it offline. The different states out there for the elections need to learn this and not to leave anything online on the internet. They can conduct an election without going on the internet. We don’t have to have the information just in time. Each precinct can tally up the vote at the end of the day and call it in and still keep that system offline from the internet. If no internet connection how can anyone hack these ballot sites? I was also seeing someone write that said that there were voting systems that had paper ballots that you feed into the voting computer, and they were right.
