Russia accuses US of hacking during elections: What the White House has to say | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker | #hacking | #aihp

A day after Russian President Vladimir Putin’s foreign intelligence service accused the US of planning to launch a cyber attack on the online voting system and try to meddle in Russia’s presidential election, the White House has said that these allegations are “categorically false.”

“These allegations are categorically false and nothing more than propaganda. The US has not and will not meddle in Russia’s election,” news agency Reuters quoted a White House National Security Council spokesperson as saying.

The White House, instead, accused Russia of having a “history of targeting US elections”.

“It is Russia that has a long history of targeting U.S. and other democratic elections. Rather than projecting falsehoods, it is Russia that should cease these activities,” the spokesperson added.

Putin sends a ‘warning’
Russians will vote in the presidential elections due to take place from March 15-17. Putin has warned that any attempts by foreign powers to meddle in the ballot would be considered an act of aggression.

Earlier this week, Russia’s SVR foreign intelligence service claimed that it had received information that US President Joe Biden’s administration had set out to meddle in its election.

The US will hold its own election in November. Last week, the Kremlin said Russia will not meddle in the US presidential contest. It also dismissed findings that Moscow orchestrated campaigns to sway both the 2016 and 2020 US presidential elections.


Meanwhile, several tech giants like Google, Microsoft and Facebook parent, have also announced that they are putting restrictions on their services so that the technology is not used to influence elections due to take place in several countries across the globe.

The companies have especially put guardrails on AI-powered services so that they cannot be used to disseminated fake or AI-generated content during election campaigns.
