    Re: CBS News confirms multiple breaches of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer

    today:

    Just days after CBS News confirmed that reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s computer had indeed been hacked, Attkisson spoke to Dom Giordano about the investigation.

    “This suspicious activity has been going on for quite some time – both on my CBS computer and my personal computer,” Attkisson said. “CBS then hired its own independent cyber security firm, which has been conducting a thorough forensic exam … they were able to rule out malware, phishing programs, that sort of thing.”

    Attkisson described some of the bizarre things that were happening with her computer.

    “There were just signs of unusual happenings for many months, odd behavior like the computers just turning themselves on at night and then turning themselves back off again. I was basically able to verify and obtain information from my sources on the suspicious activity and I reported it to CBS News in January because of course it included CBS equipment and systems.”

    Attkisson could not speak about whether the hacking was related to her questions about Benghazi because of “legal counsel,” but she did say her work at that time was primarily on the occurrence.

    “Whoever was in my work computer, the only thing I was working on were work-related things with CBS were big stories I guess during the time period in questions were I guess Benghazi and ‘Fast and Furious.’ The intruders did have access to personal information including passwords to my financial accounts and so on, but didn’t tamper with those, so they weren’t interested in stealing my identity or doing things to my finances. So people can decide on their own what they might have been trying to do in there.”

    When asked how she felt about being hacked, Attkisson had this to say:

    “Even apart from this specific incident with my computers … I operate as though someone is looking at what I do, just because that’s the safest thing,” Attkisson said. “While it’s upsetting to have that sort of intrusion done, it’s also not that unexpected.”

    Attkisson also confirmed that the investigation is still ongoing, and that she still has questions about the way the Benghazi incident was handled.

    “We’re continuing to move forward aggressively, CBS News takes this very seriously, as do I. I think whenever an unauthorized party comes into the home of an American, whether it’s any private citizen or journalist and gets in their house, searches their computers — these are computers my family uses — and they’re inserting or removing material for whatever their reasons are, I think that’s a really serious and disturbing matter and we’re gonna follow it up and keep pursuing it.”

    Re: CBS News confirms multiple breaches of Sharyl Attkisson’s computer

    "The unauthorized party accessed the CBS computer at my home on multiple occasions, and specifically in December, they used sophisticated methods to cover their tracks, meaning they tried to remove the indications of their previous unauthorized activity," CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson shared. "We're not prepared to talk more about the who's and who did this today, but the intruder is considered highly skilled and used very sophisticated methods."

    "I'm outraged that anyone would do such a thing and CBS News takes all of this very seriously," she added.

'Didn't take personal responsibility' 'hid behind lawyers and doctors claiming it is a sickness' 'can't be a man and take his punishment' oh how Oxcy Rush shook with indignant rage....

    then came Oxcy Rush's turn to stand up like a man.... what did he do? He ran to rehab, hid behind doctors, claimed it was a sickness, got him a slick lawyer to do his talking....

    So yeah I am going to always refer to him as Oxcy Rush

    FYI it was YOU taking us off topic by making an issue of one line in my entire series of posts.... if my explanation on what a pompass piece of crap Oxcy Rush is offends then walk away.

    Oxcy Rush is like soooo many other 'conservatives'- expects everyone else to take responsibility for their actions but when it comes to taking responsibility for their own.... well we get diva divers like Oxcy Rush and a sad whiny series of binky threads down below....

    I am glad I don't carry such hatred for people I have never met before....It must really tear you up.

You want to just forget about the recent history because "those that don't learn from their mistakes are doomed to repeat them." Go for it.
    Is Obama more, or less like Bush?

    Laughing, why do some of you 'conservatives' miss the bile and pure, raw hate spewing from other 'conservatives' and call anyone who disagrees with you by calling a right wing hate monger a hypocrite and give the reasons why- hate carrying? Dude you will know when I am hateful and this ain't it. Calling a worthless ranter out isn't hateful, and just because you have no rebuttal to defend this butthead doesn't mean I am mean.

    Hear me now and believe me later, ain't none of this crap tearing me up... Been too far into the crap for peckerheads like Oxcy Rush to do much for me. This Conversation wouldn't have happened except two 'conservatives' made Oxcy Rush the issue. My point was and still is Oxcy Rush is an intellectual thief and stole the 'theorem' idea from the Reagan debacle called Irangate, or Iran-Contra.

    You two started a whine train about calling poor drug user Oxcy Rush out...

    I want everyone to read this post over, and over, and then tell us that you don't carry any hate for non progressives, or that you even can see through your own vile ranting enough to see that you are just being vitriolic for the sake of shock value alone..It's base, and disgusting, and that is all I have to say to you.

    My oh my, you are going to get the vapors at this rate... Vile rantings? Do you see me typing about a woman wanting birth control in her insurance plan and calling her a slut and if 'we' pay for her BC pills 'we' should get to watch her have sex?

    That was from the man you think I am being vile about...

    But answer me this, are you trying to convince us you have seen no, I say again, ZERO vile ranting and puke from those who call themselves 'conservatives'???

    No Sir I point out the hypocrisy of Oxcy Rush and the strong representation of 'conservatives' whining when they take even so much as a warning in here.

    I do note you change the criteria, from a hate that is tearing me up to 'any hate'.

    No hate in my heart but no passes either....

    Start a thread about your nemesis "Oxcy Rush" and take all your pathetic drivel there. Meanwhile, what we see from the Obama Admin and its lemmings is a desperate attempt to cover Obama's ass on Benghazi. It ain't going away folks. Not until that Loser is completely exposed.

    Truthfully, they don't compare. GWBush, the first incompetent, spent eight years destroying the US economy by starting two wars on the credit card and cutting taxes for the wealthy. During this AWOL drug users Presidency, the USDollar lost value from 120 to 80 because the whole world could see this economic incompetence and lost confidence in the USDollar. To add to this economic incompetence, GWBush, the first torturer, and a military pilot we spent a million dollars training and then signed a paper stating he would not go to Vietnam to use these expensive talents patriotically, created an environment in Iraq that caused Al Queda in Iraq to be formed (no Al Queda allowed by Saddam) resulting in USA responsibility for a minimum of 116,000 deaths. GWBush, the first liar, installed a legal cabal to interpret any laws or agreements contrary to original intent, example the Geneva Conventions. Now Obama learned from this and installed the Alberto Gonzales clone, Holder, as AG. GWBush, the first moron, and appointed by the Supreme Court, took the lead in blessing us with the, already prepared by somebody, Patriot Act, and know by the name that it doesn't have anything to do with patriotism, and we are realizing the fruits of that act on a daily basis with the NSA up our collective asses. I don't know, but think you should make your own comparisons as regards Bush and Obama.
