Election equipment tossed out after password breach

Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold on Thursday said she’s ordering Mesa County, in the western part of the state, to replace its entire inventory of voting equipment after passwords for some ballot-processing devices were revealed in a video posted on a conspiracy-theory website last week. Griswold also said that her office and law enforcement are investigating Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters' possible role in the incident. "The clerk and recorder allowed a security breach, and based on current evidence, assisted it,” Griswold said." Peters has spent this week at a conference organized by 2020 election conspiracy theorist Mike Lindell. Benjamin Freed reports.

The county last year paid its insurer a $25,000 deductible to settle an attack by the DoppelPaymer malware. Ryan Johnston has details.

The commission, which last year issued a series of sweeping recommendations aimed at overhauling U.S. cybersecurity, found that while 75% of its 82 suggestions are on track to be implemented, national data privacy legislation is “unlikely to move forward in the near future.” That's left states to continue creating a patchwork of their own laws, with Colorado and Virginia recently imposing regulations of their own.
