Election clerks vulnerable to cyber-attacks
MADISON - Wisconsin election officials fear local clerks will be vulnerable to cyber-attacks.

State elections leader Tony Bridges wrote a memo that at least a handful of local clerks are using Windows XP or Windows 7.

He says support for Windows XP ended 5 years ago and Microsoft will stop giving free security upgrades for Windows 7 next year. Bridges says a lot of those clerks won't upgrade before the deadline or pay for updates.

Some clerks with current operating systems often fail to install security patches.
