Several online internet experts are preparing to prevent hackers from penetrating the website during the voting in the Ukraine presidential election which holds on Sunday, March 31, 2019, Ukraine security service revealed.
It was noted that election interference is a polite term for hacking, therefore, while Ukrainians go to the polls on Sunday, teams of behind-the-scenes specialists will be taking up positions in situation rooms where they will be watching the virtual realm for espionage and cyber-terrorism attempts. Ukraine’s security service nightmare is a hack against the election commission on the day-of-vote that skews results and invalidates the vote outcome.
It happened days before Ukraine’s 2014 presidential election; Russian hackers infiltrated the central election commission and skewed results. Administrators caught the tampering one hour before erroneous results were released.
