One of many attempts.
WASHINGTON — Hackers with links to Russia tried to infiltrate Hillary Rodham Clinton’s home e-mail server at least five times — even as other e-mails show her making cavalier jokes about Chinese hackers, according to the latest e-mails released by the State Department.
The scammers sent Clinton five infected e-mails disguised as New York speeding tickets on Aug. 3, 2011.
New York State Police had warned of the scam in July 2011, saying the messages would implant computer viruses when unsuspecting users opened them. The ruse had been linked to Russian hackers and could have been caught by most commercial anti-virus software.
Police directed victims to delete the e-mails, but Clinton preserved them.
The hack attempts were revealed in 6,000 pages of e-mails released Wednesday by the department as part of its monthly Clinton document dump.
