Hacker kids poke hole in media narrative that it's Russians who are the US election threat

Hacker kids poke hole in media narrative that it's Russians who are the US election threat | 13 Aug 2018 | Ahead of the US midterms in November, the media has talked at length about a Russian hacking threat. Meanwhile, a competition in Las Vegas shows that when it comes to interfering with a US election, even a child can do it. Hosted by technology non-profit R00tz Asylum, the competition was held on the sidelines of the annual Def Con hacking conference in Las Vegas, where children between the ages of 8 and 17 were tasked with hacking into replica election office websites in key "battleground" states where the upcoming US midterm elections in November are expected to be tight. Of the 39 contestants who entered, 35 were successful in breaking into the sites with the fastest being 11-year old Audrey Jones. She cracked the site's code in just 10 minutes.
