With less than a week to precede the United States presidential election, election security is a hot-button subject, and hackers have actually currently struck. TechCrunch and the New York Times report that the About page on DonaldJTrump.com was briefly replaced by an unidentified party. Gabriel Lorenzo Greschler got a screenshot and video of the hacked page.



In a message, it threatened to “reject” Trump as president and said the enemies would choose to share or conceal their incriminating information based upon which choice received more votes in the form of cryptocurrency sent out to their accounts, in addition to an expected encryption key to confirm their identity. Its uncertain how they managed the attack, or the seriousness of the hazard, but the page was obviously up for about half an hour.
