The Democratic National Convention is over, but news of Democratic hacks keeps right on going.
The FBI is now investigating a hack of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), reports Reuters. The new attack, which began as recently as June, is related to the original DNC hack, Politico reported Thursday night.
In a statement released Friday, the DCCC confirmed that it was targeted by hackers.
The DCCC raises money for Democrats in the House of Representatives. The obvious sensitive data they have for hackers to steal is the personal information of donors to the Democratic Party. It’s not yet clear, however, what data was exposed and exfiltrated.
The DCCC hack took place through a spoof website that routed donors to a fake site where the Internet Protocol address “resembled one used by Russian government-linked hackers suspected in the breach of the DNC,” Reuters reported.
Fingers have widely been pointed at Russia for responsibility of the hack but no one from the U.S. government has gone on the record to officially place the blame.
In this kind of incident, however, this isn’t out of the ordinary. Attribution for cyberattacks on the highest level is notoriously difficult and sometimes impossible.
Update 9:45am CT, July 29: Added statement from DCCC.
