Federal government: CT a target of election hacking

Elections officials say Russian hackers targeting election systems across the United States a year ago skipped North Carolina with their cyberattacks.

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

CT officials have been notified by the federal government that the state's online voter registration system was targeted in hacking efforts by Russian Federation previous year.

"This scanning had no impact on Wisconsin's systems or the election", Haas said. It happens hundreds if not thousands of times per day. DHS confirmed to my office that there was no breach and no attempt to breach Minnesota's election system.

Federal authorities were in contact with all 50 states and six USA territories on Friday, Wyman said.

Under-pressure De Boer convinced Palace will turn corner
Despite having to defend their lead for an hour and a half including injury time, Burnley comfortably kept Crystal Palace at bay. Then, in the 89th minute, Palace defender Scott Dann was presented with a virtual open goal but he headed wide.

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.

"The security protocols we already have in place made us aware of these attempted intrusions by Russian IP addresses throughout the course of the 2016 election", Wyman said in statement.

Wisconsin Elections Commission assistant administrator Meagan McCord Wolfe says the state is creating the security planning team to prepare for 2018 and in response to the ongoing national conversation about election security.

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