COINCIDENCE OR PURPOSEFUL INTENT?

The relative told The Post & Email that in the early hours of Thursday, a brand-new I-Mac was hacked. “They were able to get inside of it and reconfigure it and basically make it inoperable,” he said.
The individual, who is a veteran of the U.S. military, suggested that the perpetrators have highly sophisticated, “military-grade” tools at their disposal.
In 2013, former CBS and now independent reporter Sharyl Attkisson reported that her business and home computers, home telephone, cell phone, internet service and home security system were sabotaged, with the computer breaches confirmed by three forensic analysts. Attkisson’s subsequent book, “Stonewalled,” describes “how she has been electronically surveilled while digging deep into the Obama Administration and its scandals, and offers an incisive critique of her industry and the shrinking role of investigative journalism in today’s media.”
On January 5, 2015, Fox News reported that “Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has sued the Justice Department over the hacking of her computers, officially accusing the Obama administration of illegal surveillance while she was reporting on administration scandals.”
In July, another relative who is also the hospitalized soldier’s power of attorney reported that her phones and home and work computers were hacked and that the perpetrator obtained the other relative’s email address through her address book. She has said that she has “hard evidence” as to who the perpetrator is.
The POA was hacked before the other relative’s equipment was attacked in what have been described as a “relentless” assault over the past nine weeks. The POA said that personal information involving relatives under the age of 18 were also affected.
In addition to cyberstalking, physical stalking has been reported by the POA outside of her home which she said began after the soldier gave a video deposition to U.S. Army CID in June about the sexual assault he alleged occurred on April 29, 2013.
As evidenced by The Post & Email’s reader log, at least one person at the Department of Defense is aware of the hacking (see above graphic).
