Washington, D.C.'s Board of Election says it is the victim of a data breach, potentially providing access to 600,000 lines of voter data.

The group RansomVC is claimed responsibility for the breach.

The board said it became aware Thursday of the breach, which was made public Friday, according to the news blog DCist.com.

The voter records were accessed through DataNet, a web server used by board, but no internal databases were directly compromised, according to the board.
