Chinese Hackers Attacked FEC Website
Of course the Chinese government will claim they know nothing, even though they totally restrict internet access in their country. Oh the irony.
Check it out:
A report released on Tuesday by the Center for Public Integrity says Chinese hackers attacked the Federal Election Commission (FEC) website that contains records of donations received and spent by federal candidates.
The attacks, which occurred after October 1 during the government shutdown, came on the heels of warnings from independent auditors that the FEC information system was rickety and at “high risk” for an attack. But the FEC blasted the findings and claimed they were not vulnerable because their “systems are secure.”
“The FEC is rotting from the inside out,” wrote Dave Levinthal on the Center for Public Integrity blog.
