Hackers Might Be Chasing Pro-Trump Websites | Avast
As the United States presidential election draws nearer, cybersecurity firm Cloudflare has noticed an increasing number of attacks on Donald Trump’s campaign and business websites. Reuters reported that Trump hired Cloudflare to defend his websites throughout the campaign, which has been steeped in suspicions about disinformation and foreign interference. In their security assessment, Cloudflare suggested that the attacks – growing not just in number but also in sophistication – could indicate a larger assault on the horizon. Cloudflare believes the previous minor attacks served the hackers as “test” attacks to get a sense of how to truly disrupt the sites.
