  1. US Suspects Russia Behind Computer Hacking in 2 State Election DatabasesFrom Voice Of America. 

    U.S. officials suspect Russian hackers were responsible for breaking into two state election databases earlier this month.

    “This is the closest we’ve come to tying a recent hack to the Russian government,” one official told NBC News on Monday.

    The FBI has not identified the two U.S. states whose data bases were attacked, but Yahoo News, which first reported the breaches, quoted sources who say Arizona and Illinois were targeted.

    According to Yahoo News, an Illinois election board official said the voter registration system was shut down for 10 days last month after hackers stole personal information on approximately 200,000 voters.
