>> The cyber attack on Democrats looking even more dire. Reuters reporting exclusively Friday, the computer network used by the Clinton campaign was also breached by hackers. That following revelations of two other attacks, one on the Democratic National Committee and one of the party's fundraising arm. Reuter's Mark Hosenbal in DC.
>> I've heard that the investigators believe that the hackers got into the Clinton campaign computers somehow by doing something called spear fishing, which is I think, somehow inserting malicious code into personal email accounts used by employees there. And then when these employees presently logged in to their work accounts from the same computers, they potentially infected the central computer of the computer's that they were logging into the campaign.
The campaign hasn't confirmed that they were hacked. And in fact, they're trying to bully people away from the story, but they haven't denied that they were hacked either.>> Sources telling Reuters, the Department of Justice's National Security Division is investigating whether these attacks threatened US security. A sign the US concluded the hacking was state sponsored.
It's not clear what information on the Clinton campaign's computer system hackers would have been able to access. Security experts have already said, they have evidence Moscow was behind the two earlier cyber attacks. The breach on the party's national committee resulted in the release of thousands of embarrassing emails just ahead of the Democrats nominating convention in Philadelphia this week.
Well, Russia has denied any involvement, party leaders accuse the Kremlin of tried to bolster Republican nominee, Donald Trump against rival, Hillary Clinton. Sources say, the hack at the DCCC, which raises money for Democrats running for the US HOuse of Representative may have begun as recently as June. They said the breach may have been intended to gain information on donors rather than to steal money.
