Cops Arrest Teen for Hack and Leak of DHS, FBI Data

A 16-year-old boy living in England has been arrested in connection with the recent hack of FBI and DHS data, as well as the personal email accounts of CIA director John Brennan and homeland security chief Jeh Johnson.

Fox has confirmed that British authorities have arrested the still- unnamed teen with help from the FBI and that they are looking for possible accomplices.

The alleged hacker had told Motherboard webzine that he had swiped the names, titles and contact information for 20,000 FBI employees and 9,000 Department of Homeland Security employees. He told Motherboard this was possible through a compromised Department of Justice email.

Authorities believe this is the same hacker who compromised the private email accounts of Brennan and Johnson in October, though officials say neither man used these accounts for government use. As for the agency data, reports indicate that the pilfered information amounted to an internal phone directory. (Read more from “Cops Arrest Teen for Hack and Leak of DHS, FBI Data” HERE)

    This is more important than the former Secretary of State, a career criminal using an non-secure server in her home receiving and sending top secret eyes only documents in the thousands after having signed a document acknowledging that it would be a felony to do so, HOW! Further agreeing to protect the secrecy of said transmissions, acknowledging signing a document requiring the return of all in her possession upon stepping down. Most of these wound up in the hands of our enemies throughout the world via hackers, outing our agents and assets internationally and this piece of human waist is running for the former White House………..WHAT!
