Illinois Voter Registration Database Hacked

Illinois election officials say hackers attacked the state’s voter registration system last week and it was shut off as a precaution. The cyberattack happened July 13 and the voter system was shut off as a precaution that same day. The board’s general counsel, Ken Menzel, said hackers found “a chink in the armor in one small data field in the online registration system.”Menzel says the board is analyzing tracks left by the attack and isn’t ready to say what information may have been accessed
