US is Prepared to Hack Russia if it Interferes in the Election

Officials of America are nervous because they think that alleged attempt by Russia of influencing election may extend till vote itself, and thus they are not ready to take at all any kind of chances. The senior intelligence source informs NBC News that cyberwarfare agents of US can hack the critical infrastructure of Russia, if they find any evidence of attack disrupting election in a major way. A large breach is not expected by the US, however message is very clear: US can hurt Russia if they invade in their democratic process.

The systems apparently include some of the telecommunications networks of Russia, its electrical power grid and command systems at the Kremlin. While election infrastructure of US has major faults with outdated voting machines and voter data, the decentralization nature of the election makes it much difficult for attackers to completely change the final result.

Officials have warned saying hackers may try and bring down power networks or even intentionally spread misinformation on the Internet in trying to sabotage the electoral process.

The U.S. intelligence and FBI agencies are already examining forged documents intended to discredit the Hillary Clinton campaign as a part of a larger investigation into the attempt by Russia to sabotage the presidential election as believed by US officials.

Dailymail.co.uk posted on November 5th, 2016, stating that Tom Carper, a US senator and a democrat of Senate Homeland Security Committee, referred a document to FBI for investigating on the basis that his name as well as stationery are forged to look authentic.

The leaks have uncovered the infighting between Clinton and her former Democratic opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, forced the resignation of the chief of DNC - possibly most significantly - cast Russia and its capacity to cause damage as worrying figure impending on the 2016 campaign.

Immediately, more threat is Russia will attempt as much possible without crossing line. Guccifer 2.0 along with others may disseminate the false leaks as well as fake voting information for trying to sway election in the very last minute, which might not be easy to stop. However, Russia has denied any involvement in latest hacks of U.S. political groups and operators.
