Russia, China hackers targeting US votes, alerts Microsoft

Microsoft claims the attackers were targeting staff from President Donald Trump ‘s campaigns and his Political opponent,

Microsoft said it averted recent cyber attacks on both Republican and Democratic presidential campaigns from China , Russia, and Iran on Thursday, as technology giants struggled to defend election security less than two months ahead of the US vote.

The announcement came as Twitter said next week it will implement a policy to delete “false or misleading information designed to damage public confidence in an election,” including unverified claims of victory; and Google said it would take steps to ensure its “autocomplete” search feature does not render such mistaken suggestions.
