That's according to an advisory issued Thursday, less than two weeks before the presidential election.

The alert describes an onslaught of recent activity from Russian state-sponsored hacking groups in against state and local networks, some of which were successfully compromised.

The advisory from the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity agency functions as a reminder of Russia’s potent capabilities even as U.S. officials warn about Iranian interference.
