At this point, I'd be more worried about :

Overall, the method is one of “medium sophistication,” Williams said, one that “practically any hacker can pull off.


Our nation's secrets are behind the walls that were so easily attacked. (if this is legit)

As an IT professional, this would be embarrassing to the point of the job you no longer have due to incompetence.

Interesting that the only attempts at election tampering was traced directly to DHS by Georgia and Florida as well as some unnamed other states. Maybe they are just trying to cover that.

I no longer trust anything coming out of NSA, CIA, FBI, Homeland security.

Not trying to be an apologist..., the ABC's have done it to themselves.


Makes for a hell of an ironic headline, doesn't it.

"After decades of lies, manipulation and marginalization to it's citizens. U.S. agencies angry that public doesn't believe them when they say they are actually telling the truth."

I don't believe a single thing any government official, including the shirt tail "employees" commonly known as "news anchors" says.

Donald Trump will be president thanks to 80,000 people in three states




The most important states, though, were Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump won those states by 0.2, 0.7 and 0.8 percentage points, respectively — and by 10,704, 46,765 and 22,177 votes. Those three wins gave him 46 electoral votes; if Clinton had done one point better in each state, she'd have won the electoral vote, too.

Doesn't take much to swing it their way.
Nothing blatant or obvious like Puties usual "landslide" victories when the Russian People get to vote.

The Intelligence Community have proven that they cannot be trusted by the people. It would take a lot of change and time for them to prove themselves trustworthy again. At this point it is probably better to start from scratch to get rid of all the moles.

considering NATO has gone from a defensive organization to overthrowing nations for the control of markets and resources through puppets, and expanded non-stop right up onto Russians Western and Southern borders with a documented history of offensive attacks since the beginning of the century I think the Russians have a right to be concerned about NATO.

Look, I'm a small to no government, non-interventionist person at heart... but I don't believe that the path to that state is through burning the status quo to the ground and Russia in control is not good for anyone.

Firstly, I don't believe squat that I read in the media until triple checked. Lying bastards!

Why doesn't it bother anyone that, if this is true, our government is leaking Top Secret information to the media like the Titanic taking on water?

Just saw a tweet that a person was arrested for leaking that NSA document to the press.

Right.

It seems they were just "testing the waters," so to speak.

Concerning, indeed.

Well that opinion has been shared by billions across the globe about the USA being in control. I find it quite enlightening when I see the world through the eyes of others who may not be enjoying who controls what.

I don't think you would find anyone in the US who disagrees with that. (aside from burning down the "status quo" if you mean Washington DC.)

If Russia was able to make any changes to the way our voting process worked, we, as a nation need to get better at our cyber security. I'm not offering a free pass to the hackers, but how many Nigerian Princes have been arrested for duping stupid folks out of $ ?

Can't say you're wrong. I've been disgusted with large portions of our foreign policy since I was a little girl.

I was starting to think that leaking was the new "reporting". Glad to see that at least a few people on the inside consider this a bad thing.

If Russia attacked us, we deserve to know... for that matter if there was shady dealings with Russia and team Trump, we deserve to know.

Good God, I hope there is more than "proposed" solutions, there should have been implemented solutions about a minute and a half after the hacks were detected.

Think of this in terms of the company "Life lock" being hacked. Their job is to protect against this stuff. If they can't do it, then they serve not purpose other than to be a money depository for the uninformed. And this is a much, Much more important data security network.
