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.”
