The Clinton Foundation’s computer system has been breached as part of what authorities suspect is a concerted pre-election attack by Russian hackers on U.S. entities with political ties, Bloomberg writes. The news agency cites three unnamed people familiar with the matter, who say the compromise of the charity’s network was identified by government investigators as recently as last week.
Foundation officials said the charity has not been notified of the breach and offered no further comment. The Democratic National Committee disclosed a cyberattack last week that a security firm working with the party linked to hackers working with the Russian government. Bloomberg says authorities have notified the Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders campaigns of attempts to penetrate their networks.
Purported DNC documents, including donor lists and opposition research on Mr. Trump, have surfaced online. A leak of Clinton Foundation documents could provide fodder for the presumptive Republican nominee, who has made the charity’s fundraising and activities an element of his attacks on Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival.
