Clinton campaign reportedly breached by hackers

ICE Graveyard 29/07/2016 Kate Conger

Hillary Clinton’s campaign network was breached by hackers targeting several large Democratic organizations, Reuters reports.

The hack follows on the heels of breaches at the Democratic National Committee and at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee earlier this year. More than 19,000 emails from DNC officials were published on WikiLeaks just prior to the Democratic National Convention, casting a shadow over the proceedings.

Some security experts and U.S. officials have attributed the breaches to Russian operatives, although the origin of the email leak is less certain.

The DCCC is working with CrowdStrike to investigate the breach, according to Reuters. CrowdStrike also investigated the earlier breach at the DNC.

TechCrunch has reached out to the Clinton campaign for comment and will update this post if the campaign responds. The FBI is reportedly preparing a statement on the breach.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
