The Russians are coming after election records
Russian hackers breached a computer used by election officials in ArizonaIt is not clear to me what the value is of a state's voter registration system is to a foreign country. It would be difficult for them to use the data without being caught in an audit of the results. Perhaps they are just messing with the US. Perhaps they may be looking for a way to target Sen. McCain who they see as an adversary.
The FBI alerted Arizona officials in June that Russian hackers had targeted its voter registration system, a state official said. The system was later found to have not been compromised, but the user name and password of a county official was stolen. The news comes amid heightened concerns over Russian hacks of Democratic Party organizations and possible meddling in the presidential election.
