US Media: Russian Hackers Hit Pentagon Email System

- VOA News,August 7, 2015

U.S. media are reporting that hackers based in Russia penetrated the email network of the Pentagon's Joint Chiefs of Staff, leading to a two-week shutdown of the system.

Media outlets quoted Pentagon officials who confirmed the cyberattack.

NBC, which first reported the story, said it was not clear if the attack was sanctioned by Russia's government or was the work of individuals.  

The attack occurred around July 25 and affected about 4,000 military and civilian personnel.  NBC, quoting unnamed sources, said no classified information was seized or compromised, but that the Pentagon shut down the Joint Chiefs' email system during an investigation of the attack.

U.S. officials recently confirmed that about 21 million U.S. government employees, contractors and others had personal information compromised in two other cyberattacks suspected to have originated in China.
