The FBI reports attacks against American voting system

08/30/2016

FBI has reported evidence than foreign hackers have breached into electoral database in two states in the last weeks. In Illinois, personal data of 200.000 voters were stolen, an incident that forced shutdown of the system. In Arizona, attackers did not manage to access database, although the incident forced a one week shutdown. The evidence gathered after both incidents indicate that IP used for the attacks are located in Bulgaria, The Netherlands and Russia.
