Alex Halderman, a University of MI computer scientist. She also stated that the software does not play any role in vote counting or tabulation.
Current and former county election officials in all six in counties, with knowledge of work surrounding the 2016 election, all told CBS4 Tuesday they do not believe they received the corrupt email and none of the officials believe the company VR Systems alerted them to any potential problems.

In a statement, Secretary of State Ken Detzner said, "Florida's online elections databases and voting systems remained secure in 2016".
"If you can manipulate that ballot programming you can often exploit the vulnerabilities", Halderman said, opening the door to vote tampering. We have policies and procedures in effect to protect our customers and our company.
By now I'm sure you've read the numerous reports of the recently leaked NSA report on Russian Hacking and hopefully you have taken the time to read the statement released by VR Systems.
