National Republican Congressional Committee suffered ‘cyber intrusion,’ spokesman says

Written by Foxnews

The National Republican Congressional Committee said Tuesday it suffered a major hacking attack during the 2018 election.

“The NRCC can confirm that it was the victim of a cyber intrusion by an unknown entity,” NRCC spokesman Ian Prior told Fox News.

“The cybersecurity of the committee’s data is paramount, and upon learning of the intrusion, the NRCC immediately launched an internal investigation and notified the FBI, which is now investigating the matter.”

Prior added: “To protect the integrity of that investigation, the NRCC will offer no further comment on the incident.”

The NRCC is the committee dedicated to electing House Republicans across the country.

Politico first reported that the NRCC suffered the cyber intrusion during the midterms.
