Sharyl Attkisson: CBS confirmed my computer was hacked ‘on multiple occasions’

In May, investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson acknowledged that something fishy had been going on with her personal and work computers since early 2011. Reminder: Attkisson’s investigations reportedly infuriated the White House and the DOJ. While she wasn’t “prepared to make an allegation against a specific entity,” she said it was possible “there could be some relationship” between her compromised computers and the DOJ spying on Fox News reporter James Rosen.

On Friday, Attkisson tweeted a statement from CBS about the hacking of her computer. According to CBS, a forensic analysis “revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data.”

Scary stuff.
