Threats to US elections.
The Register reports that Mandiant says that they are “highly confident” that cyberspies from other nations may target US elections this year. "We have tracked activity from groups associated with Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and other nations targeting organizations and individuals related to elections in the US and/or other nations with apparent goals ranging from information collection and establishing footholds or stealing data for later activity to one known case of a destructive attack against critical election infrastructure," Mandiant said in research. Mandiant also said that they believe with “moderate confidence” that DDoS attacks, ransomware, and other disruptive attacks will impact elections, however, compromising actual voting machines and the like is unlikely.
