>> Hackers may be able to break into the websites of about 30% of candidates running for a seat in the House of Representatives. That's according to a new study by independent researchers presented at the DEFCON Cyber Security Conference in Las Vegas, Sunday. Researchers found widespread issues in sites for both democratic and republican candidates alike.
The warnings about the upcoming midterm elections come after Democrats have spend more than a year working to bolster cyber defenses of the party's operations, and follows a string of warnings by Trump administration security officials that Russia is actively interfering in the November elections. The DEFCON attendees also spent days hacking into voting machines to highlight vulnerabilities in election technology.
