ATLANTA — Diamant confirmed the Governor's office asked the GBI to contact the FBI after learned of the scope of the problem.
"Obviously this is a big incident that affects a lot of people in the state of Georgia," cyber-secutiry consultant Tony UcedaVelez said. "There could be numerous types of threat motives that are in play."
Sources said the breach happened Wednesday night and the hacker made off with millions of voter records.
"Compromised information means that criminals are leveraging that information in order to make more tactical ploys for compromising identities, for compromising our financial status," UcedaVelez said.
"This matter is deeply concerning, but I am confident the FBI working with KSU will track down the perpetrator," Kemp said in a written statement.
