WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Hackers broke into the Senate's public website for the second time in a week but were prevented from getting any sensitive data, a security spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

The Senate's website had also been hacked over the weekend, leading to a review of all its websites, in the latest embarrassing breach of security to hit a major U.S.-based institution.

This attack was similar in that hackers broke into the public site and downloaded information, said Martina Bradford, the deputy Senate sergeant at arms. The Sergeant at Arms Office provides security for the Senate.

"They're getting nothing but the attacks continue," said Bradford. "We've been able to stay ahead of the hackers and keep them out of the main Senate network."
