Last month, CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who has done lots of digging on stories such as Benghazi and Fast & Furious, became suspicious that her work and personal computers were being compromised.

That suspicion has been confirmed:

“A cyber security firm hired by CBS News has determined through forensic analysis that Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions late in 2012. Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts. While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data.

This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion.

CBS News is taking steps to identify the responsible party and their method of access.”

Jim Geraghty speculates, by way of Twitchy:
