The Georgia Secretary of State's Office now confirms 10 separate cyberattacks on its network were all traced back to U.S. Department of Homeland Security addresses.Is the Obama DHS trying to hack the Georgia election process (remember, the Hillary camp thought they had a chance of turning Georgia blue), or is there a lone Lois Lerner type activist (or two) at DHS trying to find something? DHS Says Georgia Hack May Have Been Rogue Employee. Or maybe it's the Russians, and they're just making it look like DHS.
In an exclusive interview, a visibly frustrated Secretary of State Brian Kemp confirmed the attacks of different levels on his agency's network over the last 10 months. He says they all traced back to DHS internet provider addresses.
As Kemp's office waits on word from the Trump administration about investigating this incident, we're talking with a cyber security expert about why he believes this could happen, on Channel 2 Action News at 6 p.m.
"We're being told something that they think they have it figured out, yet nobody's really showed us how this happened,” Kemp said. "We need to know."
Kemp told Channel 2’s Aaron Diamant his office's cybersecurity vendor discovered the additional so-called vulnerability scans to his network's firewall after a massive mid-November cyberattack triggered an internal investigation.
