NBC: Российские оперативники проникли в избирательные системы в семи штатах

According to NBC News, the scale of compromise were different from the entrance to the sites prior to entry into the voter registration system

The American intelligence community has collected substantial evidence that secret agents working with the support of Russia, discredited system of registration of voters or the websites of state agencies in seven States before the election of 2016.

This was reported by broadcaster NBC News.

Citing several unnamed us officials, the broadcaster reported that a top secret intelligence, requested by President Barack Obama in his last weeks in office, shows the seven States in which, according to analysts, the Russian operatives hacked databases or government websites.

Three senior intelligence told NBC News that, according to intelligence, we are talking about Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Texas and Wisconsin.

According to them, the introduction of the system in these States had different character. In some States, the hacks were more serious than others – from the entrance to the sites prior to entry into a real system of voter registration, the report said.

Although officials in Washington informed the authorities in some of those States before the election about the attempts of foreign agencies to enter their system, they did not say that it is due to the Russian government, said the representatives of the States NBC News.

All the representatives of the Federal authorities and States in an interview with reporters from NBC News agreed that the results of the vote remained unchanged, and none of the voters has not been excluded from the lists.

As reported by the broadcaster, the intelligence community defines compromise as a real log on to the websites of the electoral system, voter registration system and the system of finding information pertaining to the voters.

At the moment, six of the seven States, relying on its own investigation, denied the burglary, reported NBC News. Some experts believe that this discrepancy emphasizes how America is not ready for the next wave of Russian intervention, which, according to representatives of the intelligence, will happen.
