More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

The scope of the DNC hack widens as personal accounts—Yahoo Mail and associated smart phones—of Democratic Party campaign consultants show signs of compromise. CNN says Federal authorities warned the Democratic National Committee of a potential network breach “months before” the party acknowledged and addressed the problem; the DNC says the warnings it received were non-specific.

CrowdStrike has attributed the hacking to Russian intelligence services, and most observers concur, although security firms like eSentire and Rook do note that forensic analysis can be more circumstantial than dispositive. Notable demurrals include WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (“no proof”) and Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov (who denies-by-dismissal).

Russia is widely thought to be seeking influence over US elections. Since the hackers were in the DNC’s systems for a year, more leaks are expected. US officials are investigating; no clear response to the hack has emerged.

Krebs looks at both parties’ and candidates’ email practices and finds them all wanting.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the partially successful suicide bombing in Ansbach, Germany, releasing a pre-attack video of the apparent attacker “pledging allegiance” to the Caliphate.

F-Secure tells Motherboard they’ve been contacted by a ransomware purveyor who claims to be working for a Fortune 500 company, hitting its competitors. “We have no way of confirming the claims of the operator,” says F-Secure.

Acalvio Technologies has emerged from stealth with $17 million in combined Series A and B funding. Acalvio describes its offering as “fluid deception,” a shifting and less-resource-intensive set of decoys for attackers.

Connecting the dots: How Russia benefits from the DNC email leak (Washington Post) The emails of Sony employees. Top-secret diplomatic cables. The addresses of married people who used a confidential dating service. Every time “secret” information is made public, the focus of attention is always, immediately, on the sensational details. The motives of the hacker, the leaker or the person in possession of the secret tapes are rarely examined. But what to do when that person has an ulterior motive quite far from “the public’s right to know”? And what if that person’s motive is to help throw an American election?
