America Under Hacks…

Now this…
The Islamic State hacked into the email accounts of UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s senior ministers.
The Telegraph reported:

Jihadists in Syria have hacked into ministerial email accounts in a sophisticated espionage operation uncovered by GCHQ, the Telegraph can disclose.

An investigation by the intelligence agency has discovered that extremists linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have been targeting information held by some of David Cameron’s most senior ministers, including Theresa May, the Home Secretary.

It is understood that at least one of the plot’s ringleaders was killed by a drone strike in an operation disclosed by the Prime Minister this week.

By hacking into the private offices of senior ministers, the extremists could have discovered events that government figures and members of the Royal family were expected to attend.
