Our election result portal was att@cked by hackers from Asia during Ekiti and Osun Guber polls —INEC.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says its result viewing (IReV) portal has come under att@ck from hackers across the world.
Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman, said this while delivering a keynote address at a stakeholders’ conference on election result management on Friday in Abuja. The conference was organised by YIAGA Africa, a civil society organisation (CSO), to launch the election result analysis dashboard (ERAD) report agenda. Yakubu said the commission has recorded several attempts to hack the cyber security system of the result viewing portal.
“Another technical concern for us is the repeated attempts to break through our cyber security system for the portal,” he said. Our engineers reported several cyberattacks on the portal during the Ekiti and Osun governorship elections, some of them from as far as Asia. I am glad to note that all of them failed.
