    Computer system used for the Hillary Clinton campaign was subjected to a hacker attack by Russian intelligence services, media reported Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Computer system used for the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was subjected to a hacker attack by Russian intelligence services, media reported Saturday.

    The same branch of the Russia’s intelligence could also be behind the attack on the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the New York Times newspaper said, citing a federal law enforcement official.

    The FBI is currently investigating the cyberattack on DNC emails, released by WikiLeaks last week.

    The Clinton campaign has blamed the hack on Russia, but Moscow refutes the allegation, naming them "absurd."
