Researchers have found links between the recent cyberattacks on U.S. state election systems and previous operations targeting political and government organizations in Turkey, Ukraine and Germany.
A flash alert issued by the FBI last month warned about a couple of attacks targeting board of election systems in two U.S. states. While the agency did not name the states, they are believed to be Illinois and Arizona, both of which shut down their voter registration systems this summer following cyberattacks.
The FBI’s report included a list of IP addresses and penetration testing tools used by the attackers in their operations.
