Hackers Try to Infiltrate White House Computers
At the start of National Cyber Security Awareness month, the White House has become the latest target of a cyberattack.
Fox News is reporting that a series of hackers have tried to infiltrate the White House’s computer system, including ones with access to nuclear information.
The effort was classified as a “spear phishing” attack, which is typically an email fraud attempt that aims to compromise confidential data. It’s unknown at this time if any data was stolen, but the Associated Press said the attack was isolated to prevent spread.
The report also noted that White House has partly confirmed that the breach was conducted by Chinese hackers.
