Clinton Foundation warns donors about targeted phishing attempts

The Clinton Foundation warned donors about targeted hacking attempts to steal donors' personal information, according to two contributors and a copy of an email seen by Reuters, in a year that has seen an unprecedented wave of hacks of U.S. political organizations. While the New York-based charitable organization reiterated previous statements that it has "no evidence that our system was breached," it said in its email on Wednesday that hackers were trying to obtain information from donors with fraudulent emails claiming to be from the foundation.  The foundation's email went out about a month before the Nov. 8 general election, in which a number of hacks have played outsized roles in the contest between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump.
