The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee releases a statement announcing their offices have been hacked.
The DCCC hired CrowdStrike, the cybersecurity / forensic investigations firm that the DNC hired after their attack. CrowdStrike traced the infiltration to two Russian agencies before the DCCC goes public.
“Based on the information we have to date, we’ve been advised by investigators that this is similar to other recent incidents, including the DNC breach,” DCCC spokeswoman Meredith Kelly said in a statement.
“The DCCC takes this matter very seriously. With the assistance of leading experts we have taken and are continuing to take steps to enhance the security of our network in the face of these recent events. We are cooperating with the federal law enforcement with respect to their ongoing investigation.”
The DCCC is an organization that raises money for Democrats running for the U.S. House of Representatives.
