FBI ELECTION HACKING WARNING
CLIENT ADVISORY: LEGACY SYSTEMS & VPN VULNERABILITIES
11 days after the FBI, CISA hacking warning, Trustwave, a global cybersecurity company, discovered a hacker selling the personal data of 200 million+ Americans, including the voter registration data of 186 million on the dark web. The information included names, phone numbers, email addresses, physical addresses, registration information, & political party information.
Much of the data identified is publicly available, the kind that is regularly bought and sold by legitimate businesses. That said, information such as phone numbers, email addresses, and physical addresses has been used recently in the Proud Boys voter intimidation attack by Iran-sponsored cybercriminals.
