DHS tells 21 states they were Russia hacking targets before 2016 election

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) notified 21 states Friday that Russia attempted to hack their election systems before the 2016 election.

In the majority of the states, the Department of Homeland Security only saw preparations for hacking, like scanning to find potential modes for attack. Voting machines are not connected to the internet and cannot be scanned in this way, but other systems, including those housing voter rolls, can be.”
