A Feature That Allows Phishing

Starting in October 2015 Jonathan Lampe, the founder of Cybertical, published a series of reports detailing the apparent web security of the more than a dozen presidential candidates. By March 2016 almost all remaining campaigns had performed the remediation recommended in the reports, and the 2016 US presidential race proceeded without web defacement incidents.

Lampe's work has been featured in Politico, CIO magazine, the Associated Press and local NBC TV affiliates. He is a frequent cybersecurity speaker at national conferences such as the (ISC)2 Congress, regional conferences like Thotcon, SANS and Data Connectors and military conferences at Fort Gordon and elsewhere. His certifications extend back to 2001 and include the GCIA and GSNA from SANS, the CISSP from (ISC)2) and the CCSK and CFTP from other organizations.

2016 US Senate Race Cybersecurity Report

We graded the web site cybersecurity of 67 US Senate candidates

Every two years almost seventy major candidates vie for Senate seats across the United States. Many of the candidates have or will soon have a major impact on policy and spending, and their campaign web sites are visited by millions of voters and other interested parties. 2016 has been the year of the political cyberattack, with hacked emails, phishing, insecure servers and even whispers of foreign penetration in the news.

Despite this backdrop, the cybersecurity of US Senate senatorial campaigns leaves much to be desired. On November 1, Cybertical employed a new tool to scan the sites of 67 major candidates and found unpatched vulnerabilities, administrative usernames and public entry points on many of them. To help communicate which candidates’ sites were better or worse than others, every site scanned was awarded a “grade point average” (GPA) and a letter grade from A to F.
