DHS: Hackers Could Disrupt Election Reporting

How to rig the system by using false red flags, smoke and mirrors (dishonest, criminal Democrats favorite recipe and method) . 1. Warn about hacking, 2. Report problems (hacking) taking pace, 3. Use the confusion to install the outcome you wish, 4. Eliminate all trails and blame the problem (hacker) for the lack of documentation for this surprising (now)  “new” result.

Story from The Federalist Papers

We’ve reported about the potential for elections systems to be hacked, but a new Department of Homeland Security report brought up a threat many may not have thought of — the potential for the election results to be hacked.

Fox News reported:

The report also warned the public dissemination of unofficial voting results potentially could be manipulated by hackers.

The DHS report, titled “Cyber Threats and Vulnerabilities to US Election Infrastructure,” explained that some states have started “migrating to the cloud” with systems that report election results to the general public and media.

The report said: “Vulnerabilities in the public-facing Internet portion could be used to display inaccurate vote results to the public and media. Election Day results are not the official results of the state or local jurisdiction.”

At the same time, the report stressed that an “intrusion into vote tabulation systems would likely be contained to the manipulation of unofficial Election Night reporting results, which would not impact the certified outcome of an election.” But this “could undermine public confidence in the results.”

In addition to the concern about the release of early voting results that could “undermine public confidence,” the report showed other areas that are vulnerable. Fox News reported:

Other election infrastructure vulnerabilities and concerns were outlined in the “Official Use Only” report, including:

  • Cyber criminals and hackers are likely to continue to target voter registration personally identifiable information data.

  • Electronic voting systems are vulnerable to compromise. DHS assesses the election outcome would only be impacted if a compromise happened on a large scale across multiple machines or jurisdictions, which officials judged beyond the capability of any adversary. (DHS did not respond to FoxNews.com questions on measures to prevent or respond to potential voting system compromises.)

Over the summer, hacking attempts on state election boards sent shockwaves across the country about the potential for fraud.

Still, the DHS report showed optimism about the ability to thwart these attempts:

In addition, local election officials, media organizations, and political campaigns carefully monitor local voting patterns, particularly in electorally significant jurisdictions, and are likely to detect and begin investigating potential anomalies quickly.

Hopefully this won’t happen, but it’s something extremely important for people to keep in mind. No matter what, we’ve all got to get out there and vote, no matter what’s being reported about early results or exit poll results. It ain’t over ’till it’s over.
