Besides computer security breaches at the highest levels of the Democratic Party, Reuters reported that Clinton’s campaign itself may have also been a target.
Hackers infiltrated the computer network of presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Reuters reported today, though it was not immediately clear what information they may have accessed.
Citing people familiar with the matter, Reuters said that the attack may have been instigated by a foreign state, similair to security breaches that affected both the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the Democratic National Committee earlier this week.
The Department of Justice is already looking into the potential hack of Clinton’s computers, Reuters reported.
Their investigation will seek to determine whether or not all three breaches threatened national security.
Representatives from the Clinton campaign and the Department of Justice did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The FBI previously confirmed that it is investigating the DNC’s email server hack. Last month, DNC officials and security experts told the Washington Post that Russian government hackers gained access to the computer network of the Democratic National Committee, stealing login credentials and monitoring email and chats.
Wikileaks then posted the emails that had been stolen from the DNC in a searchable format online, revealing that the party’s top brass tried to help Clinton clinch the nomination over her opponent Bernie Sanders.
The FBI is also investigating a breach at the DCCC, which serves as the official campaign arm of the Democrats in the House of Representatives.
The hack may have occurred last month, when a fake site with a URL very close to that of the DCCC went online, capturing some Internet traffic. Reuters suggested today that the hackers might have been more interested in donor lists for political purposes, rather than stealing donors’ financial information.
