FBI Believes Russia Is Behind Attempted Hacks of Voting Registration Sites

The FBI believes Russia is behind attempted hacks of voter registration sites in more than a dozen states.

FBI Director James Comey relayed his concerns to a House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday, CNN reports. 

“There have been a variety of scanning activities which is a preamble for potential intrusion activities as well as some attempted intrusions at voter database registrations beyond those we knew about in July and August. We are urging the states just to make sure that their deadbolts are thrown and their locks are on and to get the best information they can from DHS just to make sure their systems are secure,” he said.

Comey is warning states that would-be hackers are “poking around” voter registration systems.

Comey said the hacking attempts weren’t successful and didn’t compromise voting systems, at least not yet.

“We are urging the states just to make sure that their deadbolts are thrown and their locks are on and to get the best information they can from (the Department of Homeland Security) just to make sure their systems are secure,” Comey said. “Because there’s no doubt that some bad actors have been poking around.”
