During a siege against the White House's unclassified computer system, Russian hackers read through some of President Obama's emails, according to US officials.




Even though Obama's BlackBerry and iPad weren't breached in the incident reportedly linked back to Russia, the hackers were able to read emails sent and received by the president. Exact information related to what the emails contained is unknown, and no classified data was accessed or collected.


Sensitive information actually was stored on the unclassified system that cybercriminals gained access to, and details regarding the breach are more alarming than previously reported. It's not uncommon for unclassified networks to contain political email exchanges between government officials and foreign diplomats, legislation discussion, policy debate, and schedules.
