(ABC 6 News) – A new FBI bulletin warns that cybercriminals are targeting U.S. Elections infrastructure and will likely "continue or increase" their activity in the lead-up to the 2022 midterm elections.

The news comes as a top FBI official warned a congressional committee that Russian "scanning" in efforts to gain access to government computer systems has increased in the past month.

Matt Malone, a cyber security expert, and director of VISTRADA went in-depth with Betsy Singer on the issue.
