Hacking of Electoral System Hasn’t Been Fully Investigated By Russia

“Local, state & federal agencies have conducted little of the type of digital forensic investigation required to assess the impact, if any, on voting in at least 21 states whose election systems were targeted by Russian hackers,” per NYT’s Nicole Perlroth, Matthew Rosenberg and Michael Wines:

  • “The assaults on the vast back-end election apparatus — voter-registration operations, state and local election databases, e-poll books & other equipment — have received far less attention than other aspects of the Russian interference.”
  • NYT’s Quote of the Day: Michael Daniel, cybersecurity coordinator in the Obama White House, on 2016 Election Day irregularities: “We don’t know if any of the problems were an accident, or the random problems you get with computer systems, or whether it was a local hacker, or actual malfeasance by a sovereign nation-state.”
