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.
