FBI investigating apparent cyberattack on Clinton campaign

The FBI is investigating an apparent cyberattack on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, Fox News confirmed Friday.

The breach appears to be part of a series of cyberattacks targeting Democratic organizations, including the the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).

hillary strongerNow Hillary Clinton’s own campaign is hacked: Democrats were warned they were a target in March but REFUSED to help FBI probe into cyber attacks

The computer network used by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign was hacked as part of a broad cyber attack on Democratic political organizations, people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The latest attack, which was disclosed to Reuters on Friday, follows reports of two other hacks on the Democratic National Committee and the party’s fundraising committee for candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.

The U.S. Department of Justice national security division is investigating whether cyber hacking attacks on Democratic political organizations threatened U.S. security, sources familiar with the matter said on Friday.

  • This is serious because it could point to collusion by the White House, so expect the FBI to be even more corrupt than they were with Hillary’s rogue server.

    Why does this strike me as an inside job to appear as the poor innocent victims?

    • You’re not alone in your impression. Too many “coincidences” lately involving the Clintons to be called “coincidence” anymore. Starting with the coincidental meeting of Bill with A.G. Lynch and the almost daily coincidences that have occurred since.

  • Dare she blame The Donald?

    • vimy

      Thats what I was thinking.Can we take this one step further and suggest they are hacking themselves so they can blame it on Trump.

      This was a direct result of his challenge to the Russians.

    I blame the Jews and Harper.

      And do not forget Harris.

    Naturally, paranoid people will want to blame the victim for the crime particularly if the victim is a Democrat. This is a serious breach of security so whether it’s a hack conducted by a foreign nation or by political opponents or by college kids having fun, we should be worried.

      They were warned ….. Difficult concept for a liberal.

      If you don’t want your emails hacked, don’t send them. Use hand delivery by couriers instead.

        At work I have no expectation of privacy and conduct myself accordingly.

    • It’s not a Government hack, it’s a Party hack — not much of a National Security issue. So far Clinton herself has been the biggest risk to National Security.

    I am certain that every criminal organization, oppressive foreign government regime, and crooked crony capitalist that ever made a deal with the Democrats or the Clintons in the past is VERY KEEN to know what the fuck is going on with Hillary and the Democrats and the DNC and the 2016 election. These agents all have money with which to buy the hacking expertise to “visit” Clinton and Democrat Party associated sites, efforts etc. The FBI can investigate until the cows come home. The FBI does NOT have the hacking expertise to investigate this thoroughly or conclusively. Trump has mentioned several times how ANTIQUATED and DERELICT many government systems are, how they need to be updated, etc. These days, the government does not and cannot “corner the market” and keep those with the latest technological expertise to themselves. People with cutting edge skills go to the highest bidder now. It’s been that way for almost 20 years. Also, Canadians with such skills inevitably end up having to leave Canada in order to STAY AWAKE and thrive. Only criminally prone expert hackers remain in Canada because only criminal orgs remunerate such individuals fairly. Natch, you run a risk when your client is criminally inclined…..

    • It’s not just Trump that pointed out how antiquated some of the systems are, the U.S. gov has also admitted it — there was a recent article on how some systems still use floppy disks (apparently cost prohibitive to replace them all because of the sheer number of computers). USB’s are an upgrade from that but if they’re not encrypted and follow a security protocol for their use then it’s to no avail. Apparently a compromised USB from Private Bradley (aka “Chelsea”) Manning is how Wikileaks got famous in the first place.

        No, he was using a laptop which had an operating DVD writer, on a secure network.


        • I don’t think network administrators normally control that do they? (maybe they can by auto-installation of a program handing over control of your peripherals as part of their net logon process).

          Of course an administrator can control peripherals in ROM on each individual computer but then it can’t be your personal computer — it has to belong to the company.

            In a secure facility, they do. None of my four classified computers had an operating output drive, just my Internet-access desktop. And as the unit’s Security Officer, I was quite assiduous in maintaining the requisite airgaps. I think that Bradley accidentally discovered that his office machine had not been properly configured for secure operations, and then inexplicably neglected to report the problem.
