Hackers Go After the DNC
An attempt was made to hack the servers of the DNC, The Democratic National Committee.
“This attempt is further proof that there are constant threats as we head into midterm elections and we must remain vigilant in order to prevent future attacks. While it’s clear that the actors were going after the party’s most sensitive information — the voter file — the DNC was able to prevent a hack by working with the cyber ecosystem to identify it and take steps to stop it.” Statement by DNC Chief Security Officer Bob Lord.
The DNC’s security providers discovered a fake login page that was created in order to obtain usernames and passwords.
The DNC believes the hacking efforts were caught timely and thus, no voter information has been obtained.
