The Moscow bureau of The New York Times has been targeted by hackers, the newspaper said Tuesday, amid reports that Russia was behind the cyber attack.
A spokeswoman for the paper however said its systems had not been breached.
“We are constantly monitoring our systems with the latest available intelligence and tools,” Eileen Murphy was quoted by the newspaper as saying.
“We have seen no evidence that any of our internal systems, including our systems in the Moscow bureau, have been breached or compromised.”
The Times was one of several media outlets that had been targeted by alleged Russian government hackers and the FBI was investigating the incident, CNN reported earlier Tuesday, citing unnamed US officials.
The FBI is also investigating hacking incidents targeting Democratic Party election offices that came to light last month just before the party's convention to nominate Hillary Clinton as its presidential candidate.
The Clinton campaign and outside computer analysts have blamed the hacking on Russia, but the US government has yet to weigh in publicly. Moscow has denied the allegation.
