Joseph Uchill filed this request with the Department of Elections of Delaware.

It is a clone of this request.

Est. Completion None
Status
No Responsive Documents

Communications

From: Joseph Uchill

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to Delaware's Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

1. Communications sent to or from campaigns.
2. Complaints lodged against campaigns or the Division of Elections.
3. Enforcement actions/litigation relating to campaigns
4. Correspondence with local elections authorities
5. Emails between Division of Election authorities

Here are search terms you might find useful. I also combined all the search terms into two Boolean searches you could cut, paste and enter – I figure that’d be way easier for any system that allows Boolean searches.

A. “Hackers,” “Hacker,” “Hacktivism,” “Hacktivist” “Cyber Security” or “Cybersecurity”
B. “Advanced persistent threat,” “APT,” “Denial of Service,” or “DDoS”
C. “Malware,” “Ransomware ,” “antivirus, “anti-virus,” “Trojan” or both “Computer and Virus”
D. “CozyBear,” “Cozy Bear,” “Fancy Bear,” “FancyBear,” “MiniDuke,” “CosmicDuke,” “OnionDuke,” “CozyDuke,” “SeaDuke,” “CloudDuke,” “MiniDionis,” “HammerDuke,” “Hammertoss,” or “Sofacy”
E. “61398,” “Unit 8200,” “Codoso,” “Danti,” “EvilPost,” or “SPIVY”

In a standard Boolean search, you can search for these in two searches:

i. “Hackers” OR “Hacker” OR “Hacktivism” OR “Hacktivist” “Cyber Security” OR “Cybersecurity” OR “Advanced persistent threat” OR “APT” OR “Denial of Service” OR “DDoS” OR “Malware” OR “Ransomware “ OR “antivirus, “anti-virus” OR “Trojan” OR “CozyBear” OR “Cozy Bear” OR “Fancy Bear” OR “FancyBear” OR “MiniDuke” OR “CosmicDuke” OR “OnionDuke” OR “CozyDuke” OR “SeaDuke” OR “CloudDuke” OR “MiniDionis” OR “HammerDuke” OR “Hammertoss” OR “Sofacy”OR “61398” OR “Unit 8200” OR “Codoso” OR “Danti” OR “Platinum” OR “EvilPost” OR “SPIVY”

ii. Computer AND virus

For reference:
Group “A” describes general terms used in the discussion of cybersecurity.
Group “B” describes terms related to different types of cyber attacks.
Group “C” describes terms used in discussions of computer malware.
Group “D” describes names used to describe different Russian threat actors
Group “E” describes other state-run cyber groups

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. I am a reporter for The Hill in Washington D.C., and the documents will be separately made available on the MuckRock website.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 15 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Joseph Uchill

On September 09, 2016 I responded to Joseph Uchill at (requests@muckrock.com<mailto:requests@muckrock.com>) requesting that additional information be provided to research the request.

With apologies, it looks like my request was missing the first paragraph. I am looking for documents related to cybersecurity of campaigns since 2011. Included were a list of document types and a list of search terms you might find helpful. Best,
