Chris Krebs, the former top administration official for cybersecurity, and who had claimed that the 2020 election was the most secure in American history. He is even suing the Trump administration after being fired for making such a claim.
Meanwhile, a couple of weeks later A Cybersecurity Firm Uncovered that there had been Massive Computer Hacks to several United States agencies. The first word that hackers had carried out a highly sophisticated intrusion into U.S. computer networks came on Dec. 8, when the cybersecurity firm FireEye announced it had been breached and some of its most valuable tools had been stolen.
Multiple U.S. agencies were successfully targeted, including the departments of State, Treasury, Commerce, Energy and Homeland Security as well as the National Institutes of Health. The hackers attached their malware to a software update from Austin, Texas-based company SolarWinds, which makes software used by many federal agencies and thousands of private companies to monitor their computer networks.
The SVR, Russia’s foreign intelligence agency, is considered the most likely culprit, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and some members of Congress who have been briefed by the U.S. intelligence community. But the Trump administration has not formally attributed blame. “What I’ve seen is 2020 has been about the hardest year, period, to be an information security officer,” Mandia said. “It’s time this nation comes up with some doctrine on what we expect nations’ rules of engagement to be, and what will our policy, or proportional response, be to folks who violate that doctrine. Because right now there’s absolutely an escalation in cyberspace.”
Editors Note: So, according to Mr. Krebs, the most untrusted and obviously unbelievable election in History, was not hacked, but apparently everything else in the Country was.
