Hacking Elections As a Service

Imagine a world

  • Mainland China uses cyber weapons and tactics to influence Taiwan’s elections
  • Israel uses cyber tactics to influence Iran’s elections (yes Iran has elections)
  • Russia /Syria/ Iran uses cyber tactics to influence Israel’s elections
  • Pakistan uses cyber weapons and tactics to influence India”s elections
  • North Korea does it to one of South Korea’s parties /politicians
  • Lots of clients in Latin America for such specialists

The revelations of Russian (?) hacking (selectively) and leaking in an electoral cycle  to favor a candidate which is more friendly than the other to them, could unleash a new era of cyber tactics. What is the central premise? Every party has something to hide, and each party has a foreign policy stand

If this was 1960, the CIA could have used the internet to bring down Castro (no need of poisoned Cigars)
