They cyberattacked a voting software supplier and local elections officials.
Russian military intelligence executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last Novembers presidential election, according to a highly classified intelligence report obtained by The Intercept.
The top-secret National Security Agency document, which was provided anonymously to The Intercept and independently authenticated, analyzes intelligence very recently acquired by the agency about a months-long Russian intelligence cyber effort against elements of the U.S. election and voting infrastructure. The report, dated May 5, 2017, is*the most detailed U.S. government account of Russian interference in the election that has yet come to light.
While the document provides*a rare window*into the NSAs*understanding of the mechanics of Russian hacking, it does not show the underlying raw intelligence on which the analysis is based.*A U.S. intelligence officer who declined to be identified cautioned against drawing too big a conclusion from the document*because a single analysis is not necessarily definitive.
