DNC Chair Says Don't Look At WikiLeaks Docs From DNC Hack Or You May Get A Virus
Raising an alarm over virus threats to computer systems, Interim Democratic National Committee Chair Donna Brazile cautioned users of documents, which were released in the latest DNC hack, according to PJ Media.
Brazile alleged that the hack was carried out by the infamous Russian hacker Gucciferand warned there could be "potential malware risk" while downloading the documents.
"The DNC is the victim of a crime — an illegal cyberattack by Russian state-sponsored agents who seek to harm the Democratic Party and progressive groups in an effort to influence the presidential election," Brazile declared in a statement Tuesday, USA Today reported.
"We have been anticipating that an additional batch of documents stolen by Russian agents would be released. Our legal team is now in the process of reviewing these private documents, and attempting to confirm their authenticity, as it is common for Russian hackers to forge documents."
