    COLUMBUS — Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner's Web site was attacked Monday, Oct. 20, leading to the site being left with limited functionality.

    The office said the cyber attack is the latest in a string of recent harassing efforts to disrupt the election. The Ohio State Highway Patrol will assist with an investigation of the website and other security breaches detected by the Secretary of State.

    By 5:15 p.m., a new message was posted on the Web site stating: "Due to security concerns experienced by the Secretary of State's Web site, full functionality of the Web site has been suspended to protect the integrity of state records and data. Full functionality will be restored when we are assured that all data has been protected and restored to acceptable levels of security."
