TULSA, Okla. — Cyber security experts say recent hacks of political websites doesn’t mean election security is at stake.
This week, President Trump’s campaign page was hacked, and the suspects put up a fake FBI warning, essentially asking for ransom for secrets they said they got from the site.
A campaign spokesperson says no critical information was accessed.
We also learned this week that the Republican Party of Wisconsin lost $2.3 million to hackers.
A spokesperson says the hackers accessed accounts the party used, created fake invoices, and received payments before anyone realized what was going on.
A national cyber security expert told FOX23 those high-profile hacks don’t necessarily mean the security and integrity of the election is at stake to similar hackers.
