4. RNC Reportedly Breached Via Synnex; RNC Denies It

The Republican National Committee said it was informed over the weekend that Synnex—which it characterized as a “third-party provider”—had been breached, according to a statement from RNC Chief of Staff Richard Walters posted to Twitter at 5:50 p.m. ET Tuesday. The RNC was informed of the potential Synnex system exposure by Microsoft, RNC spokesman Mike Reed told Bloomberg Saturday.

Walters said the RNC immediately blocked all access from Synnex accounts to the political committee’s cloud environment. The RNC worked with Microsoft to conduct a review of its systems and determined after a thorough investigation that no data had been accessed, according to Walters.

Bloomberg reported Tuesday afternoon that the Russian government hackers behind the SolarWinds campaign breached the computer systems of the RNC through Synnex, according to two people familiar with the matter. “We of course are investigating,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said. “The FBI and CISA are in touch with the RNC and we will determine attribution and make a decision accordingly.”
