21ST CENTURY WATERGATE? CBS News confirms multiple breaches of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer. “A cyber security firm hired by CBS News has determined through forensic analysis that Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions late in 2012. Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts. While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data. This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion.”

Say, if they can do that, couldn’t they plant incriminating stuff on your computer, too? More undermining of trust. . . .
