What the Dark Web Reveals About Election Interference in 2018
Although there has been a lot of chatter recently about the integrity of voting in the US, it’s far from clear what the specific threat is and it’s probability of doing serious damage. But the bigger threat may come from the perception of a lack of integrity in the security of voter databases. The recent discovery of more than 35 million voting records from 19 US states in a criminal forum on the Dark Web is fueling concern that voters may be frightened about their personal voting details getting out and that may in turn cause some citizens to not register to vote. It’s not unheard of. Some citizens already decline to register to vote in an attempt to avoid jury duty. Travis Farral, director of security strategy at Anomali and one of the researchers behind that Dark Web report, talks about the perception threat, along with the possibility of widespread mobile voting, the integrity of voting booths and the implications of the US having so many different means of voting—in this week’s Cyber Threat Podcast.
