A Financial Times article discusses multiple security compromises in the Whitehouse network. Heike blogged already about both President-Elect Obama’s and Senator McCain’s campaign networks were compromised by foreign hackers as well. The network of my precinct committee chairperson is next. From the article:
“For a short period of time, they successfully breach a wall, and then you rebuild the wall . . . it is not as if they have continued access,” said the official. “It is constant cat and mouse on this stuff.”
As usual, the article is slim on technical details and fills in the space with general cybersecurity background. At this point, it may be easier to list the government organizations that haven’t been compromised by Chinese hackers.
