CIA director, John Brennan’s account hacked by teenager

Sharing is caring!

CIA Director,  John Brennan’s personal email was hacked by a teenage hacker who broke into his account and swiped sensitive files including a top-secret application for a security clearance according to reports from New York post. The Post said a hacker, describing himself as an American high school student, had called the newspaper to describe his exploits.

Stored on Brennan’s private email account were a range of sensitive files including his 47-page application for the security clearance, the hacker told The Post in a story Sunday. In a series of tweets from his purported Twitter account — @phphax — the hacker taunted authorities and showed redacted images of what appeared to be sensitive government information. The man said he was not Muslim but carried out the hack because he opposed US foreign policy and supported Palestine.
