DNC Hack
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) said Friday that it had also been the target of a hacking incident that is similar to the breach into the Democratic National Committee revealed last week.

“The DCCC can confirm that we have been the target of a cybersecurity incident. Upon discovering the issue, we immediately took action and engaged with CrowdStrike, a leading forensic investigator, to assist us in addressing this incident. The investigation is ongoing,” DCCC National Press Secretary Meredith Kelly said in a statement.

Investigators have advised the DCCC “that this is similar to other recent incidents, including the DNC breach,” Kelly said. She added that the committee is taking action to “enhance the security” of its network.

“We are cooperating with the federal law enforcement with respect to their ongoing investigation,” she said.

    That is pretty good security you have. You should have had it before the hack. Real stupid. You are responsible for the hack just like Hitlery did.

        Hey darling, why don’t you tell someone that gives a $hit. I retired many moons ago, probably the time when you were pooping yellow. Now quit bothering me as all this is, is SPAM

    Any email account of interest to hackers is going to be subject to hacking. The key is to have a system with security features built in to discover hacking attempts and shut them down. It will be interesting to see whether these emails will be released and when they will be released.

    This would be a good time for Republican campaigns to check the security of their systems. The hackers may go after them sooner than they think.

    The Russians are at it again. Darn them! Please share with the rest of us though if you got any dirt on the DCCC. Inquiring minds want to know. Kind a like Bill’s comment on wanting to know about the aliens when he was prez.

      We all know it’s not the Russians, The Liberals are doing this to them selves!
