Jenna Manfre, a representative of the Department of homeland security said in a speech at the meeting of the Senate intelligence Committee, that Russian hackers had attempted to intervene in the presidential elections and to crack the registration system in 21 States of America.
About it writes on Wednesday, June 21, the news Agency Reuters.
Manfra, who holds the post of assistant Secretary for defense against cybercrime, refused to list these States, referring to the agreement on information security. She stressed, however: evidence that hackers managed to manipulate the votes, not detected.
State Department spokesman expressed confidence that the impact on the election in the US is extremely difficult because this process is decentralised.
Note that at a time as officials say the 21 state media say, citing its own informed sources, the real number of States that fall under the «attack», much more.
Last year, the States of Arizona and Illinois have confirmed that their voter registration system became the target for hackers. American intelligence believes that these actions were taken by order of the Kremlin to discredit Hillary Clinton and to help Donald Trump.
