Transcript for WikiLeaks Posts CIA Director's Personal Information Following Hack
We turn to that major breach of our top spy's personal e-mail account. Wikileaks has posted e-mails from John Brennan's account and is threatening to publish more and Pierre Thomas has the details. Reporter: This morning, personal information of the cia's top boss publicly exposed on wikileaks. Including telephone Numbers, home address, passport and social security Numbers. Details posted from six unclassified documents hacked this week from cia director John Brennan's private e-mail account targeted, his most personal information listed in a 2008 application for a national security clearance before becoming director. Initially someone claiming to be the hacker said he was a pot smoking teen angered by the plight of the Palestinians but sources tell ABC news authorities are also looking at the possibility that a ring is involved. Brennan's account appears to have been infiltrated by hackers tricking verizon and aol employees to reset his password. It highlights the risk all of us face when it comes to the security of even our private e-mail. Reporter: The cia calls the personal e-mail hack a crime and that the private electronic holdings of the Brennan family were plundered with malicious intent. The cia director's hack comes on the heel of another massive breach this which the information of other top officials was stolen including cabinet seconds and the FBI director. Let me tell you there is a problem and people need to solve it. Reporter: Millions of everyday Americans face the threat of identity threat. If you thought top government officials were immune, think again. Amy. All right, Pierre, thank you
