“In reversal, feds proclaim Russians did not seek to hack Wisconsin’s election system”

Patrick Marley for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

The federal Department of Homeland Security reversed itself Tuesday and told Wisconsin officials that the Russian government had not tried to hack the state’s voter registration system last year.

Instead, Homeland Security said, the Russians had attempted to access a computer system controlled by another state agency.

The development — disclosed during a meeting of the Wisconsin Elections Commission — came four days after federal officials told the state that Russians had tried to hack systems in Wisconsin and 20 other states.
