Cisco Systems Inc. was compromised as part of a suspected Russian campaign that damaged the US government and the private sector and left security experts across the country to assess the extent of the damage.

Some internal machines used by researchers at Cisco, a networking equipment company, were targeted. The company said that its security team moved quickly to resolve the issue and “affected software” was “truncated”.

“At this time, there are no known implications for Cisco offers or products,” the company said in a statement. “We continue to examine all aspects of this evolving situation with the highest priority.”
