US State Department network shut after cyber breach

The US State Department shut down its unclassified computer network over the weekend following suspected hackingThe US State Department said Monday it shut down its unclassified computer network over the weekend after evidence emerged that it could have been hacked. Officials believe the incident “was linked” to one late last month when hackers breached the White House’s unclassified computer network, State Department press office director Jeff Rathke told reporters. The State Department had initially said in an email late Friday that the shutdown came as scheduled routine maintenance to its main unclassified network, and would impact email traffic and access to public websites. He said the State Department’s secure, internal communication system within the building and linking US diplomatic posts worldwide were operational, but that the Internet-connected systems remained down on Monday.
