The KSU center has helped run Georgia's elections for the past 15 years, but it has fallen under increased scrutiny since a private cybersecurity researcher discovered security lapses that could have exposed more than 6.5 million voter records and other sensitive information.
A spokeswoman for Secretary of State Brian Kemp said last week that the office stood behind the results from elections held last November and earlier this year.
“As soon as we found out about (possible server vulnerabilities in March) we changed our operations so that we didn’t have to worry about the issues that KSU was experiencing,” Kemp spokeswoman Candice Broce said last week.
But Marks doesn’t buy that explanation.
“Once you know that server’s been compromised, you must assume that every other piece of equipment it touched has been compromised as well,” she told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
