Russian Hackers Targeted Pentagon Email Systems

The Pentagon took its Joint Staff unclassified email system offline nearly two weeks ago, after detecting a “sophisticated cyberattack” by alleged Russian hackers.
According to the officials, the intrusion occurred sometime around July 25 and affected about 4,000 military and civilian personnel who work for the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The officials said the suspected Russian hackers coordinated the cyber attack via social media accounts.
It’s not clear whether the Russian government was involved.
The officials said that no classified information was seized or compromised and that only unclassified accounts and emails were hacked.
The system is expected to be back online before the end of this week.
