There's significantly more to originate from the DNC Hack. 

The Associated Press affirmed yesterday that the PC frameworks utilized by Hillary Clinton's presidential crusade were hacked as a component of the late Democratic National Convention (DNC) hack. 

A week ago's email dump containing very nearly 20,000 messages from top DNC authorities was only the starting, which drove DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to leave as the gathering's pioneer, as WikiLeaks declared that it was section one of its new Hillary Leaks arrangement.

Assange additionally focused on that he had "significantly more material" about Clinton's presidential battle that could give enough proof to the prosecution of Hillary Clinton. 

Presently, when it has been accounted for that the PC frameworks utilized by Clinton's presidential battle were ruptured as a major aspect of the DNC hack, one could figure this could be the following discharge in the Hillary Leaks arrangement by Assange.

Despite everything we need to acknowledge the way that somebody is assaulting America's PC frameworks trying to impact the presidential race. 

So this sort of politically spurred assault can turn out to be surprisingly more dreadful in November — at the season of voting.

"We have to secure our race frameworks before pre-winter," says Schneier through the Washington Post. "On the off chance that Putin's administration has effectively utilized a digital assault to endeavor to Trump win, there's no motivation to trust he won't do it again — particularly now that Trump is welcoming the "assistance."" 

Since more states have moved to electronic voting machines and Internet voting over the previous years, it has made a path for programmers to control these frameworks. 

Schneier recommends the legislature to "make tiger groups to test the machines' and frameworks' imperviousness to assault, definitely expand their digital barriers" and if can not ensure their security on the web, take them disconnected.
