The daily briefing for Tuesday, August 1st, 2017.
Data Breach Alert: 40 Million U.S. Voter Records for Sale (LookingGlass Cyber Solutions Inc.) LookingGlass Cyber has tracked in an underground forum, the leak of nearly 40 million U.S. voter records from eight different states.
Election security concerns fall into three broad categories: vulnerable electronic voting machines (with demonstration hacks conducted last week at Black Hat), exposure of voter databases (LookingGlass has found some forty-million US records for sale in dark web souks), and influence operations (largely Russian, and finding launching points in other countries, including the Czech Republic). The effect of influence operations, thought by some to be exaggerated, remains the subject of investigation in the US and elsewhere.
LookingGlass Cyber Solutions Welcomes CenturyLink to Cyber Guardian Network (BusinessWire) LookingGlass® Cyber Solutions, a leader in threat intelligence-driven security, today announced a powerful agreement with CenturyLink.
