The US said about the hacker attacks from Ukraine
The attack was aimed at the conduct of the elections.
Investigators said the United States attempts to intervene in the local election in Tennessee. In their opinion, the attack was carried out from the territory of Ukraine. This was reported by CBS.
– Given the suspicious activity and, especially, proved concurrent malicious tampering with IP addresses in Ukraine… I think, it is reasonable to hypothesize that it was a deliberate action, – said the Deputy Director of the County of Knox on information technology.
No significantly damage a hacker attack did not cause. However, the work of the resource was suspended for about an hour.
According to experts, such actions can greatly affect the level of trust of voters to elections as such.
