Teenager had access to accounts from US intelligence chief




A member of the group Crackas With Attitude has broken into several accounts of James Clapper, head of the US intelligence services. He would, among other things have had access to the e-mail of Clapper and his wife, and was able to phone calls forwarded.

According Motherboard is the action at the same teenagers who earlier access obtained the e-mail of CIA Director John Brennan. One member of the group, called Cracka, now claims to have had access to several accounts of Clapper, including his personal e-mail and telephone. He would also have had access to the Yahoo e-mail Clappers woman.

Cracka further says all calls to the phone number of Clapper diverted to have a number of the Free Palestine Movement. This is an organization dedicated to the human rights of Palestinians. When a Motherboard journalist called the number of Clapper, this turned out to be indeed diverted.

A spokesman for the Department of Clapper has confirmed to hack Motherboard. According to security expert Michael Adams would thereby be more about social engineering than a real hack. “Every serious hacking but begins with social engineering, he says further on Motherboard. He adds that the ‘insane’ is that were Clappers address and telephone number can be found via Google. Cracka stated that he had performed the action, “because there are people who know what the government does and does not agree.”
