Costa Rica launches investigation after reports hackers ‘rigged’ 2014 election

“Costa Rica is to investigate whether hackers interfered with its 2014 elections.

The investigation comes days after jailed hacker Andres Sepulveda claimed he had used black propaganda and other tactics in order to influence many electoral contests across Latin America over a run of eight years for 2005 until 2013. Sepulveda told Bloomberg News that he hacked emails, phones and websites in order to gather intelligence in order to give his right wing clients an illicit advantage in nine Latin American countries.”
