But as per the report by Associated Press over 20 US states’ voter registration systems have been attacked. This latest revelation has increased concerns of DHS officials regarding foreign hackers being involved in disrupting the high profile event in the US and also to affect voter confidence in the elections’ integrity.According to cyber-security experts and federal officials, it is almost impossible to change or modify the results of the election because the entire election system is decentralized. Moreover, it isn’t connected to the internet, so there is little chance that hackers would be able to pull off such an enormous feat of altering US elections results successfully.As per the officials, over the past few months, the department has observed unwanted activities and the main targets are voter registration systems. However, currently, the department cannot identify with certainty if the threats are from local hackers or foreign.
