Hillary Clinton’s private email server she maintained in her home while serving as secretary of State was possibly hacked by Russia-tied authorities, and others, on five separate occasions.

Investigators discovered among Clinton’s cache of released emails five that contained malicious software aimed at transmitting data to three overseas computers, including at least one in Russia, the Associated Press reported. The malicious software was activated by clicking on it; it’s not clear if Clinton actually opened these messages or not, AP said.

The emails were disguised as speeding tickets from New York, and they were sent five times during a four-hour span on Aug. 3, 2011.

Security analysts said their discovery doesn’t necessarily mean the hack, if successful, would have sent information to Russia’s government, or simply to Russian private citizens.

But fears of a breach could prove unfounded.

“We have no evidence to suggest she replied to this email or that she opened the attachment,” said Nick Merrill, a spokesman for Clinton’s presidential campaign, AP reported. “As we have said before, there is no evidence that the system was ever breached. All these emails show is that, like millions of other Americans, she received spam.”

Critics, however, say the hack attempt is yet one more piece of evidence that proves Clinton created a massive national security threat with her private, home-based email server.

The hack tries came during America’s targeting and killing of Osama bin Laden, and during the contentious Arab Spring.
