According to Politico, the hackers had access to DNC servers for a year:
The hackers had access to the information for approximately one year but were all cleared out over the last weekend, the Post reported, noting that the DNC said that no personal, financial or donor information had been accessed or taken.

Neither the Trump or Clinton campaigns responded to the Washington Post when asked about the extent of the Russian infiltration:
The Clinton campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for the Trump campaign referred questions to the Secret Service.
