Hackers Breach Clinton’s Campaign

Sharing is Caring

“An analytics data program maintained by the DNC, and used by our campaign and a number of other entities, was accessed as part of the DNC hack. Our campaign computer system has been under review by outside security experts. To date, they have found no evidence that our internal systems have been compromised,”

– Nick Merril, Clinton’s Campaign spokesperson

Thousands of emails (19000) from the members of Democratic National Committee (DNC) were published on WikiLeaks by hackers on the eve of Democratic National Convention.

Many security experts in the United States have attributed these cyber-security breaches to operatives from Russia.

The hackers had hijacked Clinton’s data analytic program and exposed dynamic voter database. This exposed voter contact information and files.

Reuters reported that Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) hired CrowdStrike to investigate the breaches. The cyber intrusion had far reaching implications including the resignation of Democratic National Committee chairperson Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
