Centcom Hacked After Obama Touts “Cyber Security”

FBI IS ON THE CASE … FOR WHATEVER THAT’S WORTH

|| By FITSNEWS || Moments after U.S. President Barack Obama wrapped up a speech on “cybersecurity,” the Twitter and YouTube pages of the United States Central Command (a.k.a. “Centcom”) were hacked by supporters of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The hackers told American soldiers to “watch your back” because “we are coming.”

“You’ll see no mercy infidels,” the message stated. “ISIS is already here.”

According to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), the attack wasn’t a data breach – just an incident of “cybervandalism.”

“It’s inconvenient, it’s an annoyance,” a Pentagon spokesman told reporters, but added that in no way had any “sensitive or classified information been compromised.”

Well that’s good … God forbid ISIS get the plans for the F-35, right?

Anyway, Obama has had all sorts of cyber-headaches lately, hasn’t he?

So … who’s investigating the breach?

“The FBI is investigating the recent intrusion involving CENTCOM social-media accounts and continues to work with the Department of Defense in order to determine the nature and scope of this incident,” a statement from the Federal Bureau of Investigation read.

In other words expect an imminent announcement blaming everything on North Korea …
