DHS Attempted to Breach the GA Secretary of State Department’s Firewall

DHS Attempted to Breach GA Secretary of State Department’s FirewallIn breaking news, WSB-TV Atlanta is reporting that someone at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) attempted to cyber-breach the firewall at the Georgia Secretary of State’s department.

According to Georgia’s Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, the attack originated out of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) office based on the DHS IP address.

The Georgia Secretary of State’s office manages the state’s voter registration, elections data plus corporate and professional license records and Kemp is “angry as hell” that the IP address originated from the DHS office.

Kemp told WSB-TV’s investigative reporter Aaron Diamant:

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

“It’s outrageous to think about our own federal government is doing this to us,” Kemp told Diamant.

“We’re demanding answers to some of these questions, you know? Are they doing this to other states? Was it authorized or not? Who ordered this? Why is it being done and why weren’t we notified?” Kemp said.

With civil unrest, riots, and attacks against President-elect Donald Trump’s supporters by Hillary Clinton supporters, and the mistrust of the Obama Administration, such an attack against a state government’s elections office is unheard of and may be intentional although spoofing an IP address is possible.

If the Department of Homeland Security IP address was indeed, spoofed, a fraudulent or malicious practice in which communication is sent from an unknown source disguised as a source known to the receiver, then one has to question the lack of security at a federal agency in charge of security of this nation.
