Josh Lederman, a national political reporter for NBC wrote on Twitter Sunday, “The National Security Council also confirms that it is working to identify and remedy potential issues after a reported foreign government-linked hack of Treasury and a Commerce Department unit’s email systems.”

According to Reuters, the elaborate cyber hack was launched on the Treasury Department as well as the Commerce Department’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, or NTIA, a U.S. agency that is tasked with crafting internet and telecommunications policy. Sources told the outlet that the hack was so serious it led to a National Security Council meeting on Saturday.

Hackers reportedly used the organization’s Microsoft Office 365 platform to monitor staff members emails for months.

A Treasury Deparment spokesperson deferred comment to the NSC. A spokesperson for the Commerce Department confirmed the breach, adding that it has “asked CISA and the FBI to investigate” but declining to comment any further.  A Microsoft spokesperson declined to comment to FOX Business.

An FBI spokesperson said it can “neither confirm nor deny details related to any ongoing investigation,” citing the agency’s standard practice.

The announcement comes less than a month after President Donald Trump fired Christopher Krebs, the nation’s top cybersecurity official. Krebs, who oversaw CISA, was responsible for leading the effort to protect U.S. elections.
