Russians suspected in hack of New York Times, other US media: CNN

WASHINGTON, Aug 23 (Reuters) - The FBI and other U.S. security agencies are

investigating cyber breaches targeting reporters at the New York Times and other

U.S. news organizations that are thought to have been carried out by hackers

working for Russian intelligence, CNN reported on Tuesday, citing unnamed

U.S. officials.

"Investigators so far believe that Russian intelligence is likely behind the attacks

and that Russian hackers are targeting news organizations as part of a broader

series of hacks that also have focused on Democratic Party organizations, the

officials said," CNN said.

Reuters could not immediately confirm the report. The FBI declined to comment,

and representatives for the U.S. Secret Service, which has a role in protecting

the country from cyber crime, did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

The intrusions were detected in recent months, according to CNN. Citing the U.S.

officials, it said the Times had hired private security investigators to work with

national security officials in assessing the breach.

News of the cyber attack comes amid a wave of similar attacks targeting major U.S.

political parties that have surfaced in recent weeks ahead of the Nov. 8 presidential election.

The Democratic National Committee, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary

Clinton's campaign and the party's congressional fundraising committee have all been affected.

Hackers have also targeted the computer systems of Republican presidential candidate

Donald Trump and Republican Party organizations, sources have told Reuters.

If confirmed, the breach at the Times would not be the first time foreign hackers

infiltrated a news organization: media are frequently targeted in an order to glean

insights into U.S. policies or to spy on journalists.

In 2013, a group of hackers known as the Syrian Electronic Army also attacked Times

and other media outlets. Chinese attackers also infiltrated the Times that year. (Reporting
