Evan Perez and Shimon Prokupecz write the investigators think Russian intelligence led the cyber breaches as part of a broader series of hacks aimed at Democratic party organizations to gather intelligence through non-governmental organizations with windows into the U.S. political system.

“We are constantly monitoring our systems with the latest available intelligence and tools … We have seen no evidence that any of our internal systems, including our systems in the Moscow bureau, have been breached or compromised,” said Eileen Murphy, the Times spokesperson.

The Democratic National Committee experienced a data breach in June that committee officials reported as attacks from state-sponsored Russian hackers to steal research data on then presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
