It seems ironic that the head of a government agency famous for hacking into private accounts of its citizens is himself hacked. I wonder how he now feels about strangers hacking into his personal email account? Does he, too, feel violated?
U.S. authorities have arrested two North Carolina men accused of hacking into the private email accounts of high-ranking U.S. intelligence officials, including the private email accounts of CIA Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. The North Carolina men will be extradited next week to Alexandria, where federal prosecutors for the Eastern District of Virginia have spent months building a case against a group that calls itself Crackas With Attitude… Authorities say the group included three teenage boys being investigated in the United Kingdom.
According to U.S. officials familiar with the investigation, the group also hacked into the accounts of Mark Giuliano, a former FBI deputy director; Amy Hess, the FBI executive assistant director for science and technology; Gregory Mecher, who is married to White House communications director Jen Psaki; and Harold Rosenbaum, chief executive of CIA contractor Centra Technology.
