The Chief Executive Officer of VoteHere, a developer of secure electronic voting technology confirmed this week that a hacker broke into its corporate network in October and accessed internal documents.

Jim Adler, chief executive officer of the Bellevue, Washington-based firm, said the break-in may be related to a recent firestorm of concern over the security of online voting.

"Within 24 hours we identified who the individual was and where he lived and turned that info over to the FBI and cybercrime unit of Secret Service," Adler said.

"Over the subsequent two months we've been collecting evidence, and that is, by and large, complete."

Under Investigation
Because an investigation is under way, Adler declined to name the individual or comment more specifically on exactly what documents the hacker may have accessed.

Adler said the break-in didn't affect the integrity of VoteHere's technology.

He said he didn't know if the hacker copied the software's source code but said all of the source code, which had been patented, had already been released to security researchers for review
