FBI investigating possible cyber breach of New York Times reporter email accounts

DEVELOPING: The FBI is probing a possible cyber breach of numerous company email accounts belonging to New York Times reporters, a law enforcement source close to the investigation told Fox News on Tuesday.

The investigation, which is ongoing, is looking into how and how far the perpetrators infiltrated the Times email accounts in question.

This source could not say exactly how many New York Times email accounts may have been compromised. 

Separately, Fox is told it is too early to make a determination as to who the perpetrators may be or what their motivations are. 

CNN first reported the breach of reporter email accounts and added that other U.S. news organizations were also targeted. The source speaking to Fox News was unaware of other reporters at different agencies who may have been targeted.

Fox News' Matt Dean contributed to this report.
