CISA & FBI have released election interference warnings for Russia & Iran in the following 2 special bulletins

CISA and the FBI have released two joint cybersecurity advisories on widespread advanced persistent threat (APT) activity. Both joint cybersecurity advisories contain information on exploited vulnerabilities and recommended mitigation actions for affected organizations to pursue.

These 2 special warnings are as follows:

AA20-296A updates a previous joint CISA-FBI cybersecurity advisory and provides information on Russian state-sponsored actors targeting U.S. state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) government networks, as well as aviation networks. In limited instances, this activity has resulted in unauthorized access to IT systems used by U.S. election officials.

AA20-296B details Iranian APT actors working to influence and interfere with the U.S. elections to sow discord among voters and undermine public confidence in the U.S. electoral process. These actors have taken part in spear-phishing campaigns, website defacements, and disinformation campaigns to spread obtained U.S. voter-registration data, anti-American propaganda, and misinformation about voter suppression, voter fraud, and ballot fraud.
