Federal investigators have accused Russian hackers of carrying out recent cyberattacks against a private contractor working with Florida's election system.
The hacks were first discovered near the start of October, and officials worry the personal data of some Florida voters is now public.
Florida isn't the only state that's been targeted. Russian hackers were already believed to be behind attempted hacks on voter registration systems in Illinois and Arizona.
