Hackers ‘poking around’ american voting systems! Cyber-security has great impact to election.

United States presidential election of 2016 are just around the corner. And the issues raised during the election season are various, for instance ,immigrantion, abortion, economy, home-land security and so on. Among those issues, cybersecuity has draws a lot of attention. In June 2016, DNC, which stands for Democratic National Committee, underwent a cyber attack. The data and anaylsis of their major opponent Donald Trump are stolen. Couple days ago, a hacker claimed that he/she has acessed into Clinton fundation and obtained thousands og e-mail and personal information of donators. DNS isn’t the only target. FBI has comfirmed that “Hackers ‘poking around’ voter systems.” A series of political cyber attcks have raised awareness of cybersecurity. People started to wonder whether hackers are trying to manipulate the 2016 presidential election.

United States of America is not the only country battling cybersecurity war, Germany, which will hold an major election next year, is the another target. Few weeks ago, a number of malicious emails were sent to german politicians’ inboxes. These emails contained links to malicious websites that could have allowed the hackers to obtain information from the users’ computer networks. At a particularly sensitive time, this cyber attack is considered to link to the upcoming election.

These two incidents summarize the problem of cybersecurity nowadays. Old-fashoned viruses are often identified as obstacles when using devices. For examples, they automaticlly download malwares on the devices, pop up advertisements that you can’t close, or make your devices completely disfuction! The infections are so obvious that you couldn’t possibly ignore. As time flies, viruses are no longer created to destroy your user experiences but to “steal infromation from you.” As the result, when people are hacked, they don’t “feel like they are.” Eventually, awareness of cyber security ends up decresing.
