China Hacked White House Computers

Reports now say Chinese hackers, possibly sponsored by the Chinese government, hacked into White House computers. E-mails and information was stolen before government officials were able to fix the problem.

Earlier, reports said foreign entities also hacked into campaign computers of Barack Obama and John McCain. The Obama campaign suspected either the Russians or the Chinese.

This marks a new era in intelligence gathering and cyber attack. In the Georgian war, Russian hackers hacked Georgian government websites, essentially limiting the exchange of government information to the public. In a time where the vast amount of information and communication is transferred through the internet,defense against cyber attacks has become an increasing priority in American national security.
