And joining us now is Joshua Bruce dean, Bloomberg news technology reporter in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, Josh welcome. So you've been checking up on the progress of Mr. Korean. Yeah. I went down and spent a day at the DNC headquarters earlier this month and spoke to Roffe several times both about his role in trying to prevent future hacks, but also in kind of a more strategic role as as he alluded to in that, quote, he's trying to build a platform and infrastructure that can help democratic candidates better compete as they go into the mid terms and also into the twenty and twenty presidential election. What's he done to fix security? Well, he's been trying to do some basic things like just get everyone to use two factor. Authentication has been trying to open up lines of communications between the various sort of power centers of the Democratic Party. And just tighten everything up. It's a big job. I tell a story in the peace over the summer. It seemed like the Democratic Party was being hacked. It turned out that it was actually just a test from the Michigan Democratic Party that no one had bothered to tell Raphael his team is going on. And so there was a. Moment of fear, and they actually managed to figure that one out. Well, that brings up an important point here in that use that the Democratic Party is not necessarily monolithic. It's got a lot of different things going on and different states, and in places that campaigns are being held. Yeah. Absolutely. If you want to understand the challenge of a job like being the CTO of the Democratic National Committee. You have to understand just that dispirit world that they're working with you have campaigns. You have state parties, and then you have other private organizations who are kind of working on the democratic side, and the DNC is just one player there, and it's trying to kind of leverage its power the best. It can. It's tricky thing to do is that any different really from the Republican party. I mean, the publican party has disparate groups and campaigns and the Republican party over the last couple of years has done a much better job than the Democrats at coming up with a centralized infrastructure of data and tech. That it's campaigns. Could tap into. You saw this in the run up to the two thousand sixteen presidential election where the C built basically the seeds of tech operations for whatever. Candidate would end up winning the primaries, and what happened was Donald Trump won and had sort of unusually creative and experimental digital operation. And so those things ended up giving the Republicans a big edge in tech during the election. Yeah. I was gonna say there was a certain candidate does seem to have a lock on Twitter. Yeah. Absolutely. And also in Facebook advertising, actually, Trump's digital director Brad par scale who will be his campaign director in two thousand twenty did a lot of sort of experimental and aggressive Facebook advertising a lot of targeting. Some of this stuff was seen as unethical. There was obviously the Cambridge Analytica scandal. But a lot of it was just seen from the democratic side as hey, they're doing the things that we should be doing if they hadn't written the movie the graduate yet, you could say I've got two words for you. Cambridge Analytica how how important is that in these different parties are formulating now. Yeah. I mean, I think the Cambridge Analytica scandal it sort of cast a cloud on the idea of social media targeting sort of data collection. But you know, when I've talked to a political operatives on the tech side of things, they really are full steam ahead. They want to they want to figure out. The best way to use voter data and targeting to help their sides. When it's kinda surprising here is that. I thought the Democrats, you know, kind of had a lock on Silicon Valley.

That have put it behind the Republicans in the last certainly over the course of the Obama years, and one of the one of the ways this has been described to me is that so much so much of the sort of activity was centered around Obama himself that some of the party building that should have been going on was left to decay a bit while the Republicans are out in the wilderness, dying to get back in and really commit a concerted effort on tech and other things.

The DNC hired Silicon Valley veteran Robbie Kerkorian as its chief technology officer his job was to modernize the party's technology and prevent future breaches speaking at a new founders conference in two thousand seventeen Kerkorian explained his role the way to describe this God is not really as technology, but more of a job of infrastructure and platform, and making sure that the party can provide that kind of technology to all of you in order to get your job's done a lot of different ways. And joining us now is Joshua Bruce teen, Bloomberg news technology reporter in our Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, Josh welcome. So you have been checking up on the. Progress of Mr. Korean? Yeah. I went down and spent a day at the DNC headquarters earlier this month and spoke to rob several times. Both about his role in trying to prevent future hacks, but also in kind of a more strategic role as as he alluded to in that, quote, he's trying to build a platform and infrastructure that can help democratic candidates better compete as they go into the mid terms and also into the twenty and twenty presidential election. What's he done to fix security? Well, he's been trying to do some basic things like just get everyone to use two factor. Authentication has been trying to open up lines of communications between the various sort of power centers of the Democratic Party. And just tighten everything up. It's a big job. I tell a story in the peace over the summer. It seemed like the Democratic Party was being hacked. It turned out that it was actually just test from the Michigan Democratic Party that no one had bothered to tell Raphael team going on. And so there was a moment of fear, and they actually managed to figure that one out well that brings up an important point here. And that is that the Democratic Party is not necessarily monolithic. It's got a lot of different things going on in different states, and in places that campaigns are being held. Yeah. Absolutely. If if you want to understand the challenge of a job like being the CTO of the Democratic National Committee, you have to understand just that dispirit world that they're working with you have campaigns. You have state parties, and then you have other private organizations, we're kind of working on the democratic side, and the DNC is just one player there, and it's trying to kind of leverage its power the best cannon. It's a tricky thing to do is that any different really from the Republican party, and the publican party has disparate groups and campaigns and the Republican party over the last couple of years has done a much better job than the Democrats at coming up with a centralized infrastructure of data and tech that it's campaigns could tap into. You saw this in the run-up to the twenty sixteen presidential election where the RNC built basically the seeds of tech op. Ration- for whatever candidate would end up winning the primaries. And what happened was Donald Trump won and had sort of unusually creative and experimental digital operation. And so those things ended up giving the Republicans a big edge in tech during the election. Yeah. I was gonna say that there was a certain candidate who seem to have a lock on Twitter. Yeah. Absolutely. And also in Facebook advertising, actually, Trump's digital director Brad par scale who will be his campaign director in twenty twenty did a lot of sort of experimental and aggressive Facebook advertising a lot of targeting. Some of this stuff was seen as a coal. There was obviously the Cambridge Analytica scandal. But a lot of it was just seen from the democratic side as hey, they're doing the things that we should be doing if they hadn't written the the movie the graduate yet, you could say I've got two words for you. Cambridge Analytica how how important is that in these different parties are foiling now. Yeah. I mean, I think the Cambridge Analytica scandal it sort of cast a cloud on the idea of social media targeting data collection. But you know, when I've talked to a political operatives on the tech side of things, they really are full steam ahead. They want to they want to figure out. The best way to use voter data and targeting to help their sides win kinda surprising here is that. I thought the Democrats, you know, kind of had a lock on Silicon Valley. And it turns out it's the Republicans are the ones who have better technology. This has been an irony that is not lost on many people. Tech side. Yeah. There's a there's this sort of base stereotype based on stereotype that oh the dams must be better at tech than the Republicans. And while it is true that Silicon Valley skews democratic on those guys have jobs in Silicon Valley. They're not working for the Democratic Party for the most part and the Democratic Party has had some structural problems. That have put it behind the Republicans in the last certainly over the course of the Obama years, and one of the one of the ways this has been described to me is that so much so much of the sort of activity was centered around Obama himself that some of the party building that should have been going on was left to decay a bit while the Republicans were out in the wilderness, dying to get back in and really commit a concerted effort on tech and other things. Thank you. Josh. You're listening to Bloomberg.

"Or its vendors. A web security firm using artificial intelligence had uncovered what was believed to be an attack and the was notified on Tuesday. This hackers appeared to have created a fake log in page to using names and passwords. In an effort to gain access to the democratic party's voter file. That's what a party official had said. The attempt was quickly thought it by suspending, the attackers account, and no information was compromised according to the official, the FBI was notified. It declined to comment to the Associated Press where we got this story from the official was authorized to speak about sensitive security information and spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity. The test was organized by the Michigan Democratic Party, which did not notify that the end see according to a person familiar with the incident who told the Washington Post that apparent. False alarm comes two years after Russian operatives sent the party into disarray by hacking into its computers and facilitating their release tens of thousands of emails. Amid the presidential election. I think this is the way to do with though getting permission to try to break into something kind of goes against the whole idea of uncovering security holes in the first place. You have to hit them by surprise. You have to do it when they not expecting it. And I think you know this kind of. Test is exactly the way. A test should be organized. That's kind of how the whole idea of penetration testing works. This is a trade that exists in the world where the higher the higher up somewhere. We'll hire hackers and experts to attempt to break into their company systems without telling anyone anyone closer to the ground. And then the results come back as made famous in the nineteen ninety two film sneakers. That's the thing that it sounds like it worked this time. Sounds like they detected the intrusion attempt and no information was given out. They should be. They should be happy about that that in Pendry test the people as the people that top or at least like Bob Loy, the head of Kirti would know that depend change going on. So he went, he would tell them like, oh, don't put out a PR statement saying, we've been hacked that didn't happen here or problem with, is that. Play little part in the US are very, they basically run like franchise. So the states and the national really coordinate now, it sure doesn't seem like they do coordinate, but I, you know, I do think that this is how penetration testing should work. You shouldn't even have to be affiliated with the organization, but that goes to my belief about where hackers fit in the first place where we should always be trying to see security holes and things. When you find something you let people know about it and we all become more secure as a result agree with that point, I do think that the reporting on this was really lacking, however, because as soon as the stories came out, if you looked at the anyway site that was carrying this particular story, you would see pictures of Saint Basil's cathedral in Moscow right off red square people making implicit associations with Russia. It's China. They trying to did for China, Trump says that now our enemy has always been China, right? All the. Sort of implicit attributions of the actor behind this when anybody could set this up and any number of minutes, it's very difficult to do. We detect these kinds of things all the time. This reminds me of what I talked about it hope which at the end of my hope talk, I've mentioned that there was a lot of DNC I'm sorry, political campaign related information that would be coming out in the media, and we had detected based on these servers that we set up to monitor the DNS for misinformation. Campaigns was a massive amount of domain name registrations in the dot for sale top level domain. And it was a weird thing because they were targeting Democrats. They were targeting Republicans who has made all at the same time the same actor on the same day within seconds of each other. So we were, we had disclosed this to the senate's sergeant arms and his cyberscout team was working on this. We had disclosed this to various campaigns that were targeted and it turns out that the AP was able to piece this together. And instead of this being an actor, it was an actual DNC related campaign for the re election of senators that made all of these preemptive registrations in the dot.

"A found that very interesting. You know it subtle, but it's there. Yeah. No, that that also, yeah, there wasn't interesting kind of twist of the knife in a way. On his previous employer, if ice book because I always want more regulation and they're trying to spend a lot of money in a lot of people to try and make this problem, less visible bottom. Maybe his experience is a thing. We should be listening to on that subject and maybe they through regulation. Now, look moving onto other sort of election hacking stuff, the Democratic National Committee incident that wasn't Adam? Yes. There was one hullaballoo after lookout, spotted a phishing site come up under the lotion, which was pretending to be a VPN concentrated. If the Democratic National Committee, they reached out the demotion to shutdown reached out to the DNC to have them going and Bisco what happened and started getting some brisk coverage because it had been cut gust on on Twitter and God. We've caught the, you know, we've caught the Russians going after the DNC again because some of the IMO did look a little bit like what you would expect a couple. Days later, it transpires that actually it was officiant tash of some sort yet turns out that Michigan, democratic potty sham and Brandon Dillon said his organization had approved. The simulation didn't let Bob Lord knows. So that was a she? Yeah. In one respect, I guess having an exercise people don't know about is the best sort of exercise and it's good that you know the Michigan Democratic Party had the side to through this off their own bat, good for them for testing their abilities, but you maybe a little more coordination, maybe a little less. Everybody writing it up in the meteors. The Russians are coming. Wait. In fact, it was, I guess, quite ineffective test. So maybe everyone's a winner on well for anyone who wants to really understand some of the context around this. I published a like a thirty six minute interview with the Democratic National Committee. So Bob Lord last week, and he had some really interesting and we recorded this a month ago longer than a month ago and got some really interesting things to say about just the structure of political parties like the DNC almost operates like a franchise. Right? And then you've got all of the site potty branches and all of that, and it's look. It's really fascinating when you look at how to run security for an organization like that. And he did even site back then that there's been a few incidents that that they flagged, which turned out to be people who. Trying to help them, you know. So it's a, it's a really weird situation to be over an organization like that. But yeah, people can go and can go and listen to that if they want to. Now we got a great report here from Andy Greenberg over at wide. He's currently running a book. I believe about not patio about the threat actors behind that, and he's written a kick ass feature here inside the incident response to not perte at my earth. Thank God for a power outage affecting demand control in Ghana. My Lord, yes, as a great pace. Integrion bug turns into a great book as well. But yeah, going inside the story of patriot in particular, how it impacted me earth, and he's been talking to all sorts of people in Ukraine and at my about kind of how things unfolded, something no one's talking to him on the Rick interesting Ralph automate up names and the pace. But yeah, kinda talk. So the experience of what seeing the machines around the office and mayors kinda report of very rapidly running around the building. Hurtling access control gates stopped working because they've been earned to go on and going to unplug as many machines as they could because they had been seconds to the to save anything. And in that leading into the shutdown of shipping operations and all that kind of thing goes on woods into the process of trying to restore from having every windows box in your global organization richt and has voted to one of the problems they had was they were attempting to get back their family, their backup types and started to restore things from prior to the the not patriot tax stock getting there was running Chen's out. They didn't have a backup of their demand controller. Because they synchronize the mole and they had how many dozens, right?.

"Act growth made easy pay. This is stretch off strong. This is Bobby Toco sit the hopes of what's good. We're talking with one of the coolest cats around Lenny. Kravitz I remember this kid walked up to us in the hallway. He goes your dad's white and he planted his finger like that subscribe now. And we're back. Let's start with the news from Microsoft and Facebook and Twitter. Microsoft disrupted, six fraudulent website set up by Russian hackers and Facebook. Shut down six hundred fifty. Two Iranian back accounts linked to a disembarkation campaign. Tim walk us through this and the other tech world news because it seems just like every few hours we were seeing more headlines about another thing that was found and stopped. It was a crazy week in the world of information warfare, which is what this really is right that we are entering this age where state actors are engaging in cyber operations. They're trying to penetrate very systems and embarrassed public officials or spread disinformation. So here's what happened with the Microsoft situation. What they did was they shut down these websites that were on the edge of attacking the International Republican Institute, the Hudson institute and the US Senate, basically trying to send emails to these folks using fraudulent websites to kind of take and steal passwords and information that's different from what happened with Facebook, Facebook shutdown a campaign that looks like it was started in Iran, which did take part in some traditional cyber operations, but also spread disinformation targeted at US, British and Middle Eastern users on Facebook, hundreds of thousands of people followed these accounts that were shut down by Facebook this week. What about Twitter? Twitter also shut down. Hundreds of can't that were related to Iran and separately and on top of it, Facebook shutdown other Russian linked accounts this week. Oh, wait till I'm a little confused here. We've talked so much about Russia, but some of this news this week was about Iran trying to meddle in the elections. They have an interest in disrupting our democratic procedures because they accuse us of having meddled in their elections. And so this is their form of payback. Yet the bottom line is that the Russian campaign in twenty fifteen twenty sixteen showed the world that this sort of thing can be done on the cheap and that you could create a lot of chaos. You can advance your interests forward for not a lot of money just by creating networks or spreading disinformation, or using the power of the internet in order to push your country's interest forward. So all that is going on. And meanwhile, the Democratic National Committee, which was the original when it came to being co, opted by cyber attacks. A key part of the two thousand sixteen Russian attempts to influence the election was getting into the DNC system, stealing their emails, giving them to WikiLeaks and then WikiLeaks releasing them right on the the convention and causing all this disruption. So Tim, you and I were reporting this. The last couple of days DMZ comes out and says, hey, we were being attacked. Again, we flagged it. We call the FBI. We stopped it. We are on it and then the story took a little bit of a twist. So yeah, we found out that actually it was a big misunderstanding that friendlies from the Michigan Democratic Party or a specialists working with the Michigan Democratic Party were actually trying to probe democratic systems for weaknesses that they could identify and fix and not just the systems a central, a key part of this, the voter file, the national voter file, where the party keeps all the information on voters. It's trying to reach out to pretty sensitive stuff. One big problem. They forgot to tell the DNC they were gonna. Do it. Yeah. So for all the talk about Russia trying to confuse and so you know, lack of trust and institutions, sometimes our institutions can confuse themselves at the which the irony here is that Democrats have been trying to tell everybody for the last year, how much more seriously they're taking office and they've said, look, we've even created fake attacks on ourselves to try and learn how these attacks come from. But there's a difference between an internal decision to create a fake phishing attack and some outside group doing the same thing not telling you and realizing, are we under attack or not? Everyone is on red alert right now for cyber operations and who could blame them..

"Story Michael Cohen is finished Shiite state investigators in New York are now subpoenaing Michael Kohn? Cohen, as part of an. Ongoing investigation into the Donald. Trump foundation which Mueller isn't. Touching and so it just gets bigger and bigger trying to completely shut it down charitable what we understood when we look at, it the foundation really does have. Some real issues it's. Pretty sketchy. There are, some true allegations or I don't know. If they're, true, there are allegations against it Well I didn't want Paul Manafort to. Be guilty but he was, says a juror in the cities of the nation, Nian Paul as something that was brought up by Wayne yesterday when we talked about whether Paul Manafort was cutting a deal why he didn't. Plead. Out and Wayne said well because maybe. They, just had so much on him that there was nothing to plead out to and. That's exactly what, this juror said. The. Evidence was just overwhelming there was no place he could go now I don't know if the it's the story from the same juror or not but there's a story, that circulating this morning. That there was one single juror who kept the whole jury from him on all. Eighteen counts Yup that's what this juror the, same jurors incidentally who said that talk about. This woman and. It didn't matter ignored the, overwhelming evidence just kept saying I have. Doubts doubts I have doubt And just wouldn't change your mind and, it doesn't matter you could pile it up in front of her and this is someone who came in predisposed predisposed to never convict although. Did, convict on the other count this is. The, this is this is the I recognize the evidence is overwhelming I also have a. Bias in favor of probably President. Trump. And Paul Manafort But I can't hold out on everything because it's but I'm gonna, throw him about this is the one. Juror throwing Manafort, a bone by holding out, on some of the counts not. Not realizing that it may make no difference as to what happens to them You know the attempted hack of the DNC's voter database apparently was a false alarm This story is so weird to me they're saying now it was a false alarm they're also saying it was, a test that it was something that was undertaken by hackers hired by the Michigan Democratic Party party who didn't tell the national committee. That they, were going to try a fishing with a ph expedition against the DNC This holes as very very odd sound fishy if somebody does spelled with a p. h. yeah well very good So I don't know what to believe here I think maybe they really. Did get compromised again and it's just way too embarrassing for them to admit it because it doesn't, make sense so Michigan decided to hire hackers to go after the DNC servers as, opposed to a security, firm the, DNC hired organizations higher all the time to try to. Hack. Into, their servers There, is a proposed ban on mandatory arbitration that is going ahead in.
