Hackers Attack Election Commission Web Site
Web site of Russia's Central Election Commission
The web site of Russia's Central Election Commission came under large-scale and sustained attack by hackers from within Russia and abroad during the presidential election, the Commission's deputy head Leonid Ivlev said on Sunday.
"It was varied and of long duration, but does not present any problem to the CEC server. They want to damage its defense," he said.
The attacks came from as far away as Western Europe and even Australia, as well as from Russia and the CIS, he said.
"Our main task now is to hold onto the collected data from all the polling stations and regional election commissions," he added.
