Russia’s Central Election Commission claims its website was the target of an unsuccessful hacking attempt during today’s presidential election.

Commission chair Ella Pamfilova told reporters that it was a DDoS or distributed denial of service attack, tracked to computers in 15 countries, without naming them.

She said efforts to disrupt the site occurred when voters in Russia’s far east were already casting ballots, but they were deterred by Russian authorities.

As US authorities investigate alleged Russian hacking and other interference in President Donald Trump’s 2016 election, Russian authorities claim that foreign powers are seeking to interfere in today’s vote.
