A U.S. computer security firm says that Russian hackers who stole emails from the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 presidential election have been trying to steal information from the U.S. Senate.
A new report by security firm Trend Micro posted on their website Friday said that hackers set up websites in June meant to look like the Senate internal computer network in an attempt to trick people into providing access to information.
The firm said the group of Russian hackers, known as Fancy Bear, is politically motivated and still very active.
It did not say whether the operation targeting the Senate had successfully stolen information. The company said it has given information about the hackers' activities to the Senate.
U.S. intelligence agencies said Fancy Bear hackers stole emails from the DNC during the 2016 presidential election.
Also noted in Friday's report, Trend Micro said the hackers have set up infrastructure aimed at collecting emails from several Olympic Sports federations, including those for ice hockey, bobsleigh and skiing.
