Russian Hackers are spearfishermen
Russian hackers gained access to voter databases in 2 Florida counties, DeSantis says
Governor says he signed agreement with FBI not to disclose counties affected
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - After an FBI briefing, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis confirmed Tuesday that Russian hackers gained access to voter databases in two Florida counties ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
DeSantis said the hackers didn't manipulate any data and the election results weren't compromised.
He said the hackers gained access through a spearfishing email after a worker clicked a link.
Republican U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio has previously said at least one Florida county had an intrusion.
Special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election also said hackers gained access to the network of at least one Florida county.
