Russia Had Ability to Change Voter Data in 2016—This Is Not Reassuring for 2018. alternet.org Russia had the ability to change voter registration data. | Hey, everyone, good news! Russia had the ability to alter voter registration data in several states in 2016 . . . but they didn't use it! What a relief, right? The Department of Homeland Security has previously publicly acknowledged that Russians scanned systems in 21 states and were able to " penetrate" a handful. But cybersecurity experts say the report Tuesday from the Senate intelligence committee offers new details on what exactly Russian-backed hackers could have done once they got inside election systems. "In at least six states, the Russian-affiliated cyber actors went beyond scanning and conducted malicious access attempts on voting-related websites. In a small number of states, Russian-affiliated cyber actors were able to gain access to restricted elements of election infrastructure," the report says. "In a small. . .

Mark Sumner, Daily Kos (2018-05-10). John Bolton Wants America to Surrender in Cyberwar—He Prefers We Stick to Blowing Things Up. alternet.org Our new national security adviser doesn't understand the modern era. | Politico reports that the Trump White House is considering eliminating the top cybersecurity position within the administration. The push to drop cyber from the list of top concerns comes from new National Security Advisor John Bolton, who apparently views cyber warfare as considerably less threatening than the kind he prefers to encourage. Instead, the position may simply be absorbed as another function of one of Bolton's assistants, moving cyber security concerns several notches down in importance. Bolton is apparently all in favor of this idea, even though earlier this week the Senate Intelligence Committee found that Russia had conducted an "unprecedented, coordinated cyber campaign" against the nation's voting infrastructure. One in which Russia actually had the ability to change voter rolls, though it doesn't appear that they took advantage. . .

Heather Digby Parton, Salon (2018-05-10). Who Paid Michael Cohen All That Money — And For What? alternet.org Sleaze, scandal creeps closer to Trump. | Donald Trump's presidential campaign against Hillary Clinton pretty much consisted of two messages.
