An online “impersonator” of a Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer tried to contact presidential campaigns, including Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) campaign, the committee said in a statement to the candidates Wednesday.
Bob Lord, the DNC’s chief security officer, wrote in an email to the campaigns that “adversaries will often try to impersonate real people on a campaign,” the Associated Press reported.
The article goes on to state the following:
He added that the “adversaries” could try to get campaign workers to “download suspicious files, or click on a link to a phishing site” or set up calls or in-person meetings to record and release.
“Attribution is notoriously hard,” he reportedly wrote. “The appropriate authorities have been alerted.
“If you are using an alternate domain, please refrain from doing so and let us know if you are operating from a domain that others have not corresponded with before.
“Do not use your personal mail account for official business.”
The Democratic National Committee warned presidential candidates after Bernie Sanders’ campaign reported an “impersonator” with a domain registered overseas posed as one of its staffers and sought conversations with members of at least two other campaignshttps://t.co/KqQpq28IG3
