Political candidates are increasingly turning to the Internet to communicate their positions and gain voter support. But the same attack vectors that already pose a risk to consumers and enterprises can be used to influence elections in a number of ways. This sample chapter from Crimeware: Understanding New Attacks and Defenses focuses on the 2008 presidential election as it examines potential threats, including domain name abuse, phishing, malicious code, spoofed political e-mails, voter intimidation, and the dissemination of misinformation.
