vulnerable to manipulation by someone who gets access ahead of time” Felten says The cyberteam began worrying that Russia might try to compromise a poll worker and gain access to touchscreen machines before the election But doing that in a way that could alter the outcome of the election was very hard First the attackers would have to know which districts could affect the outcome Then they’d have to change just enough votes to ensure victory without switching so many that it would draw attention That didn’t mean all was well The whole point of the election wasn’t just to count ballots; it was for the US to reach consensus that the democratic will of the people had been freely and fairly expressed Hacking the consensus was much easier “We concluded that Russia could erode the confidence of millions of voters and undermine our ability to conduct free and fair elections” says Anthony Ferrante former director for cyberincident response at the National Security Council who ran the frontline efforts to combat the Russian operation Since May US spy hunters had seen evidence that Russia’s military intelligence might try to damage the expected winner Hillary Clinton The intel was incomplete but pointed in the same direction: an initial report of a bragging GRU official that month was followed by other intelligence reports indicating a widespread willingness to interfere In the wake of the Illinois intrusion and on the basis of the intelligence it had received the White House team by mid-August believed there were three main ways Russian President Vladimir Putin could undermine the integrity of the vote The first and most disruptive thing Russia might do: subtly alter the voter rolls Deleting records would draw too much attention but running a program against registration files that would for instance flip the second letter in every voter’s address could go unnoticed Then on Election Day every voter in a swing county would have to vote by provisional ballot giving the impression of chaos and allowing a propagandist who wanted to call into question the vote to do so after the fact Another possibility involved the propaganda value of fiddling with a voting machine Says Daniel: “We worried Could [a hacker] document an intrusion into a [single] voting machine and then say ‘Here’s the YouTube video We did this a hundred thousand times across the United States’ even though they had never done anything like that” That would sow doubt about every machine in the country and would also undermine the final vote’s credibility Lastly the Russians could interfere with the election reporting system The actual vote tally is decentralized and extremely slow: local officials count and validate their results and state secretaries election boards or other state officials sign off on the total tabulations and only then is the official vote certified That decentralization is the system’s strength But on election night nearly all reporting across television the Internet and news wires relied on the Associated Press Altering the data reported by the AP or just taking down the AP system with a sustained attack could cause chaos Knowing all this Ferrante began working up an emergency plan for what to do on Election Day and the day after if the Russians attacked the vote Drawing on election experts at the Justice Department the FBI and DHS Ferrante scrambled to figure out what powers the federal government had legally to push back But it turned out the credibility of the vote would come into question well before Election Day And rather than the Russians it would be the government of the US that would become suspected by some Americans at least of subverting the vote President Trump met with Putin not once but twice at the G-20 summit in Hamburg in July The undisclosed second conversation took place during a dinner and without any other US officials present Evan Vucci—AP THE ENEMY WITHIN From the first report of Russian hacking in mid-June Donald Trump denied Moscow’s involvement improbably accusing the Democratic National Committee of hacking itself “as a way to distract from the many issues facing their deeply flawed candidate and failed party leader” As the story accelerated with the dump of stolen emails right before the Democratic National Convention Trump doubled down on his counterclaims On Aug 1 in Columbus Ohio he said “I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged” Which may partly explain why the atmosphere was so tense when Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson convened a conference call on Aug 15 with representatives of election officials from every state across the country On Aug 3 Johnson an Obama appointee had said he was considering declaring elections part of the US critical infrastructure along with things like the banking and electrical systems That designation would give the federal government access to state-level voter information and would open regular lines of communication with local election officials On the Aug 15 call Johnson said DHS stood ready to help the states by conducting vulnerability scans providing what he said was “actionable information” about threats and delivering cybertools to help protect election systems from intrusion But some of the states were less concerned about outsiders than they were about federal overreach according to Johnson and several participants in the call States didn’t know what being declared critical infrastructure meant and were suspicious for partisan reasons: Were Democratic officials in Washington preparing to take control of the nation’s polling places The call grew contentious as participants felt the feds were encroaching on the constitutional role of states to run elections “We secretaries of state were faced with an issue where there were perhaps foreign actors trying to get into our databases” says Arizona secretary of state Michele Reagan a Republican and one of the first victims of the Russian hack “And their answer was ‘Let’s just take over the election infrastructure which goes against the Constitution and our state law’” The atmosphere of mistrust of the feds was hampering the White House’s ability to respond to the Russian attack too Obama was already worried about the possibility of an escalating cyberwar with Moscow if he retaliated for the ongoing Russian hack senior White House officials privately said at the time With Trump fueling antigovernment suspicion Obama was even less inclined to take strong measures against Moscow in part because of the danger of seeming political Coming out hard against Russia which was widely believed to favor Trump Obama thought would make it look as if the White House were trying to help get Clinton elected “It was pervasive in the discussions” says a former senior White House official “because some state officials were questioning whether some of our actions were advancing the interests of the Democratic Party” Even as they were trying to communicate the dangers the feds were seeing more evidence of just how expansive the Russian intrusions were Three days after the Johnson call on Aug 18 the FBI sent out a flash alert to all the states including the digital fingerprints of the hackers they had gathered in Illinois and Arizona By mid-August Daniel’s group had concluded that the GRU had infiltrated the electoral systems of Florida and New Mexico In Tennessee hackers had reached into the state’s campaign-finance system Soon the number of states probed by the Russians had crossed half of all states and it was clear the Russians had tried to hack everyone; the only question was how successful they had been The emerging picture wasn’t pretty “In some cases we saw them try to get in and they failed” says Daniel “In some cases we saw them get a little way in and then get stuck And in other cases they got a little bit further and were doing these kinds of testing” What was most frightening was that they knew they were seeing only Russia’s clumsiest efforts Moscow’s state-sponsored hackers are among the most skilled cyberactors in the world The feds had to assume there were other intrusions they weren’t seeing The fact that they didn’t see intrusions in some states says one official “just means we didn’t find them” THE PLAN AND THE LAST STAND Paralyzed by politics at home Obama tried to blunt the threat directly abroad In a now famous one-on-one meeting with Putin in early September in Hangzhou China Obama told him to “cut it out” or face unspecified consequences The confrontation was memorialized in a photo of the two men staring icily at each other For a while it looked as if the warning might work “The intelligence community basically told us that [they were] not seeing [the Russians] continuing to go down that road” says a former senior White House official And in the US, Contact us at [email protected] Indian country, 16, “A consensus was developed to strengthen ties
