Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Russian attacks on election systems in the U.S. during the 2016 election targeted more states than those detailed previously, reports USA Today.
"I don't believe they got into changing actual voting outcomes," said Warner. "But the extent of the attacks is much broader than has been reported so far."
Warner is pushing intelligence agencies to declassify the full list of states whose election system may have been compromised, especially considering it would be helpful to put election systems on notice before midterm voting in 2018.
A National Security Agency report said that Russian military intelligence digitally attacked at least one provider of voting software and also sent fake emails to more than 100 local election officials just before the 2016 election in November.
