MOSCOW, September 13. /TASS/. Chairman of Russia’s Central Elections Commission Vladimir Churov said on Sunday an attempt to attack the commission’s website was made by a U.S.-based company ahead of Russia’s Voting Day.
"At 23:23 Moscow time yesterday, someone tried to attack our site making 50,000 inquiring a minute. The attack failed, the attacker was traced - it was a San Farnsisco-based company," he told journalists.
He did not rule out that the Central Election Commission would apply to relevant agencies in the United States to seek protection under the U.S. law on cybersecurity.
According to Churov, the Vybory state automated system operated in a routine regime, with no problems with data input.
