美国表示,威胁邮件背后的伊朗黑客访问了选民数据

华盛顿:美国官员周五晚间表示,伊朗黑客在本月早些时候向数千名美国人发送了一系列威胁邮件,他们成功地获得了选民数据。

这份由联邦调查局(FBI)和国土安全部网络安全和基础设施安全局(CISA)联合发布的声明,部分证实了上周公布的一段视频的真实性,该视频是虚假宣传活动的一部分。

竞选团队以一个亲特朗普的极右翼团体的名义,向随机的美国选民发送了数千封威胁邮件。竞选团队播放了一段视频,一名黑客在视频中声称,他们可以通过泄露选民登记录来展示自己可能造成的破坏。

查看这些视频的专家称,这只不过是试图恐吓选民11月3日竞选的公正性,但黑客是否真的闯入了任何地方的问题至今仍未得到解答。

CISA和联邦调查局周五证实, "该行为者至少在一个州成功地获得了选民登记数据" 。

该州的身份不明,不过视频中短暂闪烁了阿拉斯加选民的个人细节。联邦调查局、 CISA和阿拉斯加选举司没有立即回复寻求评论的信息。CISA和联邦调查局(FBI)表示,伊朗黑客还对其他一些州的选举网站进行了脆弱性扫描。

首先报道了https : / www . cyberscoop . com / iran - election - hacking - state - websites - probe - fbi关于CISA和FBI调查结果的Cyberscoop称,总共对10个州进行了扫描。

美国官员对即将到来的选举可能受到网络干预的威胁一直保持高度警惕,这让共和党总统唐纳德•特朗普(Donald Trump)与民主党挑战者乔•拜登(Joe Biden)对决。

周五早些时候,路透社(Reuters)报道称,俄罗斯黑客今年袭击了民主党在加利福尼亚州和印第安纳州的分支机构。

WASHINGTON: U.S. officials said late Friday that the Iranian hackers behind a wave of threatening emails sent to thousands of Americans earlier this month successfully accessed voter data.

The statement, issued jointly by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), partially confirms the authenticity of a video distributed as part of a disinformation campaign that briefly drew attention when it became public last week.

The campaign - which consisted of thousands of threatening emails sent to random U.S. voters in the name of a pro-Trump far right group - featured a video in which a hacker purported to demonstrate how they could cause havoc by breaking into a voter registration records.

Experts who examined the footage said it amounted to little more than an attempt to scare voters about the integrity of the Nov. 3 contest, but the question of whether the hackers actually did break in anywhere had gone unanswered until now.

CISA and the FBI confirmed Friday that "the actor successfully obtained voter registration data in at least one state."

The state was not identified, although purported personal details of Alaska voters were briefly flashed on the video. The FBI, CISA, and the Alaska Division of Elections did not immediately return messages seeking comment. CISA and the FBI said the Iranian hackers also scanned a number of other states' election sites for vulnerabilities.

Cyberscoop, which first reported https://www.cyberscoop.com/iran-election-hacking-state-websites-probe-fbi on CISA and the FBI's findings, said 10 states were scanned altogether.

U.S. officials have been on high alert over the threat of potential cyber interference in the upcoming election, which pits Republican President Donald Trump against Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

Earlier on Friday, Reuters reported that Russian hackers had this year targeted the California and Indiana branches of the Democratic Party.
