… Maciej Ceglowski is heading from San Francisco to Alaska, where he’s scheduled to train campaign staffers on cybersecurity. He founded Tech Solidarity, a political organization, after Election Day in 2016, concerned about the digital literacy and security of lawmakers. He’s briefed at least 15 campaigns on election security since last November, and from what he’s seen, not much has changed since 2016.
“The biggest shock is finding campaign managers who are still using Yahoo Mail,” Ceglowski said. The service had every single one of its accounts compromised in the largest hack in history. “If you’re going to point to any one email service that nobody within a mile of politics should use, it’s Yahoo, and yet they’re still using it.”
Oath, which owns Yahoo, said state-sponsored hackers target all industries, not just Yahoo, as hackers have targeted Gmail and Facebook in the past as well.
