Hackers Attack Secretary Of State's Office


The Ohio Secretary of State's office was the target of a recent cyberattack. 

A spokesperson says the attack was an attempt to insert code into the office's website. It originated from a computer in Panama, but data was not at risk. Earlier this year, the office instructed Ohio's county boards of election to undertake a comprehensive multi-faceted security strategy.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
