Why is it so easy to hack the Democratic Party’s computers?
Should Americans really trust Hillary Clinton on the all-important matter of national security if her own communications are so vulnerable?
Incredibly, there is now a third instance of a DNC network being hacked. Soon it will be hard to tell all these incidents apart.
According to a Reuters exclusive:
The latest attack, which was disclosed to Reuters on Friday, follows two other hacks on the Democratic National Committee, or DNC, and the party’s fundraising committee for candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives.
A Clinton campaign spokesman said in a statement late on Friday that an analytics data program maintained by the DNC and used by the campaign and a number of other entities “was accessed as part of the DNC hack.”
Hackers, whom U.S. intelligence officials have concluded were Russian, gained access to the entire network of the fundraising Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, or DCCC, said people familiar with the matter, detailing the extent of the breach to Reuters for the first time.
It’s unlikely this will be the last such security breach between now and November. As knowledge of these hacks become widespread, they lay open the Clinton campaign to even more well-deserved embarrassment than they’ve already experienced.
