Russian Hackers Targeted The Heritage Foundation Before The Presidential Election

According to a report from The Daily Caller, the same agents who successfully hacked into the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s emails also targeted the Heritage Foundation.

Heritage had alerted staff about the attempted phishing attempt in the run up to the presidential election: “The same threat groups that have been releasing information about the DNC, Hillary Clinton, and recently John Podesta have been targeting specific people within Heritage via phishing campaigns,” stated an email by Heritage sent on Oct. 24, 2016. “Our security monitoring tools and services show no signs of an active compromise. However, we were contacted by the FBI agent-in-charge regarding emails sent to Heritage staff in August and September.”
