Election Officials: Russian Hackers Probed Oklahoma System

23 September, 2017, 01:15 | Author: Brian Mcdaniel
  • Russians tried to hack Washington state's elections. LOL fail.

Wisconsin, a key state in the 2016 USA presidential election, said on Friday it was one of the 21 states that the federal government notified were targeted by Russian government hackers but no votes were changed.

A scan is similar to burglars jiggling the doors of a house and moving on when they realize the doors are locked.

Homeland Security officials tell The Associated Press that hackers believed to be Russian agents targeted the voter registration systems in September.

The office earlier has said it had no knowledge of its election systems being targeted. It happens hundreds if not thousands of times per day.

J&K: BSF soldier killed in Pak firing
India's Border Security Force (BSF ) said that Pakistani soldiers fired at several positions along the volatile worldwide border. Despite a ceasefire agreement that was reached in November 2003, sporadic skirmishes continue in Kashmir.


"As we've stated before, we continue to work cooperatively with DHS - including during the election a year ago".

Rosenberg says state officials were aware of the scan at the time it occurred but were not aware that Russian Federation was involved until they were told by DHS. "Internet security provided by the state successfully protected our systems". He said hacking attempts are not uncommon. DHS did not directly notify chief election officials of their states' status until Friday, according to a news release from the Maine Department of the Secretary of State. That commission has requested information on voters from every state, including Wisconsin, and posed a series of questions about the security of elections in the state.

The disclosure to the states comes as a special counsel probes whether there was any coordination during the 2016 presidential campaign between Russian Federation and associates of Donald Trump.

Trump won the election and calls the Russian Federation story a hoax.
