Hacker Claims to Have Breached CIA Director’s Personal Email


An anonymous hacker claims to have breached CIA Director John Brennan’s personal email account and has posted documents online, including a list of email addresses purportedly from Brennan’s contact file.

The CIA said it referred the matter to the proper authorities, but would not comment further.

The hacker spoke to the New York Post, which described him in an article published Sunday as a high school student motivated by his opposition to U.S. foreign policy and support for Palestinians.

His Twitter account includes links to files that he says are Brennan’s contact list, a log of phone calls by then-CIA deputy director Avril Haines, and other documents.

The Post said he didn’t reveal his name or where he lived.

The hacker also claimed to have breached a Comcast account belonging to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and released what appeared to be personal information.
