    "U.S. CyberCom contemplates information warfare to counter Russian interference in the 2020 election

    Military cyber officials are developing information warfare tactics that could be deployed against senior Russian officials and oligarchs if Moscow tries to interfere in the 2020 U.S. elections through hacking election systems or sowing widespread discord, according to current and former U.S. officials...

    The idea would be to show that the target’s sensitive, personal data could be hit if the interference did not stop, though officials declined to be more specific..."

    "State of Georgia’s Election Systems Feared at Risk in 2020 Vote

    (Bloomberg) -- The state of Georgia’s new voting system may be at risk of a cyber-attack leading up to the 2020 election because the state failed to eradicate malware that exposed sensitive data six years ago, a cybersecurity expert said as part of a lawsuit against the state.

    A server central to Georgia’s election system was infiltrated and taken over by a hacker in 2014... The server was wiped and taken offline in 2017, but the contract between Georgia and its new vendor, Dominion Voting Systems, indicates old data was “imported” into the new system.

    That old data could carry remnants of the “Shellshock” malware used to attack the state in 2014,... Shellshock allowed unauthorized users to access sensitive layers of a network..."
