Bernie Sanders’ campaign just got caught in a case of high-tech espionage.
The Socialist Presidential candidate was just suspended by the Democratic National Committee for accessing voter files from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
The database of voter records is a goldmine to candidates: it contains information about voters nationwide, CNN is reporting. The DNC keeps the information gathered by each of their candidates separated by a firewall.
But that firewall was breached by a Sanders campaign staffer after security protocols were temporarily – and accidentally – shut down by the vendor controlling the database.
When the espionage was discovered, the staffer was quickly fired, even though a Sanders spokesman said the staffer wasn’t really trying to access Hillary’s vote data. Instead, John Uretsky said, he was merely trying to “understand how badly the Sanders campaign’s data was exposed by the drop in the firewall.
“We knew there was a security breach in the data, and we were just trying to understand it and what was happening,” Uretsky said.
He added that to the best of his knowledge, “nobody took anything that would have given the (Sanders) campaign any benefit.”
