“We continue to have no evidence that HFA’s information systems have been compromised,” Glen Caplin, a spokesman for Hillary for America, the campaign organization, said.

The news service reported that on on June 26, SecureWorks Corp., an Atlanta-based cybersecurity company, “said its researchers found a group of hackers linked to the Russian government targeted Clinton’s campaign, ‘including individuals managing Clinton’s communications, travel, campaign finances and advising her on policy.”’

Earlier, the Democratic National Committee had disclosed that hackers believed to be working for the Russian government had gotten into its servers.
