Hackers again target Democratic National Committee

Hackers have again taken aim at the Democratic National Committee. A scheme discovered and shut down Tuesday involved trying to steal usernames and passwords of Democratic Party officials by way of a fake login page for VoteBuilder, the service that hosts the DNC’s voter database.

During the 2016 US presidential election, Russian hackers infiltrated the DNC using a similar “spear phishing” method, according to indictments filed in July against 12 Russian agents. Cyberattacks against the US electoral process have only ramped up since. On Monday, Microsoft said it foiled similar phishing schemes targeting conservative groups.
