DNC Says Reported Hack Attempt Was a False Alarm

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 23, 2018

The DNC didn’t know it was going to happen. Then assumed mistook it for a Russian attack, then guessed determined it was a test-all without who really did it or why.

One person familiar with the matter…Oh THAT person.

The Michigan Democratic Party and DigiDems couldn’t be immediately reached…haven’t got the stories straight yet!

Don’t worry…the FIB is right on top of it. They will figure a way to Trump and/or the Ruskies. Let’s start with a racist/hate crime angle and go from there.

To paraphrase a progressive democratic hack-I am betting the dems won’t let a bunch of twits bungle an opportune mistake.

A suspected attempt to hack into the Democratic National Committee’s voter database was actually a cybersecurity test, the organization said.

The DNC, which was hacked by Russian intelligence officers during the 2016 presidential campaign, said Tuesday it had contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation after being alerted to an apparent phishing scheme by the computer security firm Lookout Inc., which uncovered a replica of the login page to the DNC’s VoteBuilder database during an online scan.

In a statement early Wednesday, Bob Lord, the DNC’s chief information security officer, said the DNC and its partners who reported the site “now believe it was built by a third party as part of a simulated phishing test.”

The DNC didn’t immediately say how it determined the incident was a test or who had conducted the test.

One person familiar with the matter said the test site was created at the request of the Michigan Democratic Party by DigiDems, a volunteer group of technology experts that does work for the Democratic Party. The DNC wasn’t notified of the test, which led to the confusion over the spoofed site’s origin, this person said.

The Michigan Democratic Party and DigiDems couldn’t be immediately reached for comment…

Be seeing you
