Chinese Hackers Targeted White House
WSJ – The US government acknowledged that senior administration officials were targeted in “phishing” attacks by China-based hackers who broke into hundreds of users Gmail accounts. White House officials declined to discuss who was targeted.
U.S. officials briefed on the incident said the Obama administration isn’t going to raise the matter directly with the Chinese government until the facts become more clear. “Law enforcement needs to dig into this over the very short term so we have all the facts and procedures set out—then diplomacy,” a U.S. official said
