The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has once again been hacked as of Friday morning. The FBI is currently investigating a possible cyber-attack on DCCC servers. There is no clear connection to the week-long server hacking during the national convention, but it is still being looked into.
“The DCCC can confirm that we have been the target of a cybersecurity incident,” said DCCC spokeswoman Meredith Kelly in a public statement. “Upon discovering the issue, we immediately took action and engaged with CrowdStrike, a leading forensic investigator, to assist us in addressing this incident.”
Democratic Party donors were the main focus in this recent hack, as the DCCC databases carry sensitive information about their contributors. Names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, and credit card numbers are all in the DCCC system. It is not clear whether this data was exposed or not.
