Russian government hacked into the White House computers, report says

The Russian government is responsible for a known cyber hack on the White House, according to a new report by CNN. In a segment with reporter Evan Perez, CNN said the hackers were able to access President Barack Obama’s schedule and call information.

This cyberattack on presidential privacy is related to a 2014 hack of the State Department, unnamed sources told CNN.

One official said the hackers “owned” the State Department system during the hack, though the implications of this description are unknown.

Experts told CNN the hack spread from the State Department to the White House through a phishing email sent from a State Department email address.

While the government claims that the Russians did not hack into any classified systems, they were able to gain access to sensitive information, including the private schedule of President Obama.

Officials say these cyber-attacks are among the most advanced ever to hit the US government and the FBI, Secret Service and other intelligence agencies are investigating the attacks.

“This report is not referring to a new incident – it is speculating on the attribution of the activity of concern on the unclassified EOP network that the White House disclosed last year.  Any such activity is something we take very seriously.  In this case, as we made clear at the time, we took immediate measures to evaluate and mitigate the activity.  As has been our position, we are not going to comment on the referenced article’s attribution to specific actors,” the White House said in a statement.

The State Department hack came from computers around the world, a common move hackers use to cover their tracks, CNN reported. But investigators were able to find signs that point to the Russian government being behind the attack.
