The Familiar Four are all interested in US elections (says Bolton).
US National Security Advisor Bolton pushed Russia Thursday over attempts to influence US voting (Deutsche Welle). Calling for better cyber deterrence, he'd earlier said it wasn't just Russia, but China, Iran, and North Korea, too (Washington Post).
On Wednesday the US Democratic National Committee told the FBI that unknown actors tired unsuccessfully to compromise a database (Guardian). But it was a false alarm, a botched phishing test the DNC's CSO (who sounded the alarm to party and press) knew nothing about (Washington Post). The Michigan state Democratic Party organized the test (Threatpost).
