State has halted use of Russian software in election systems, Hosemann says




U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson on Friday urged Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann to remove any Kaspersky Lab software from Mississippi's elections systems over fears of Russian hacking.

But Hosemann said he made that call about a month ago, after he first heard concerns over the company's possible ties to the Russian government. He said the Kaspersky antivirus software, sold throughout the U.S., was being used in three Mississippi counties, Adams, Franklin and Wilkinson. One has already switched to another brand and two others are in the process, Hosemann said.
