Minnesota and Wisconsin were among 21 states with an election system targeted by Russian hackers in last year's elections, authorities announced Friday. The majority of the efforts found by DHS were scanning, but not breaches, and the officials stressed that there was "no evidence of any impact to voting anywhere", the news release said.
"According to Homeland Security, we were not attacked, probed, breached, infiltrated or penetrated", Secretary of State Wayne Williams said. He said that the system had recognized the IP addresses that were scanning the system and blocked them.
CT officials were notified by the federal government on Friday that the state's online voter registration system was targeted during last year's presidential campaign in hacking efforts by Russian Federation.
"As we've stated before, we continue to work cooperatively with DHS - including during the election previous year".

The disclosures to states come as a special counsel probes whether there was any coordination during the 2016 campaign between Russian Federation and associates of President Donald Trump.
Homeland Security told Wisconsin that the Russian government "scanned internet-connected election infrastructure likely seeking specific vulnerabilities such as access to voter registration databases, but the attempt to exploit vulnerabilities was unsuccessful", he said.
Federal investigators and the Senate Judiciary Committee are investigating Russia's involvement in the 2016 presidential election.
