Cyber Attack Hits White House Military Office

Wow!

Cyber Attack Hits White House Military Office  - World Affairs

Two views, I hope it was an unclassified network:

The Military Office is responsible for, among other things, the “football,” the suitcase device that permits the president to transmit commands to the country’s strategic nuclear forces. “This is the most sensitive office in the US government,” a former American intelligence official, speaking to the Free Beacon, said.

The White House has tried to minimize the incident. “This was a spear phishing attack against an unclassified network,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney. “In this instance the attack was identified, the system was isolated, and there is no indication whatsoever that any exfiltration of data took place.”
