Setting aside the humor for a second, this situation could arguably happen without a hack. There's a certain popular romance to Putin in some circles this side of the pond (albeit that popularity was more pronounced in the Obama days). If the actual candidates were atrocious enough, a write-in like this could win.

In any case, I doubt Putin would take the job, so no worries there. ;)

There's probably also a birth-certificate joke in here somewhere, too...

@John: Or not a mistake. Hackers and Internet trolls aren't necessarily known for their impeccable spelling. ;)

Incorporating a Prevention Mindset into Threat Detection and Response
Threat detection and response systems, by definition, are reactive because they have to wait for damage to be done before finding the attack. With a prevention-mindset, security teams can proactively anticipate the attacker's next move, rather than reacting to specific threats or trying to detect the latest techniques in real-time. The report covers areas enterprises should focus on: What positive response looks like. Improving security hygiene. Combining preventive actions with red team efforts.
