Hackers have attempted more intrusions into voter databases, FBI director says

Hackers have attempted more intrusions into voter registration databases since those reported this summer, the FBI director said Wednesday, and federal officials are urging state authorities to gird their systems against possible other attacks.

Testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, FBI Director James B. Comey said that the bureau had detected scanning activities — essentially hackers scoping out a potential attack — as well as some actual attempted intrusions into voter registration databases.

    This sounds possible, maybe even likely. But at this point in the game, hearing it from James Comey makes me wonder. I would require verification by an private sector IT source/consortium. THe FBI and James Comey hardly represent “unadulterated truth”.

    James Comey should retire. I will never actually believe anything the guy says ever again.n

    The Liberals are pushing for electron voting in Canada, but surely such a thing could never go wrong.
