Two States Dispute DHS Notice That Russians Targeted Election Systems

California and Wisconsin said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security was incorrect when it notified them they were among 21 states whose election systems were targeted by Russian hackers during the 2016 election. DHS spokesman Scott McConnell said notifications to 21 states were “based on a variety of sources, including scanning detected from malicious IP addresses and intelligence information that cannot be publicly disclosed.”
