The latest organization to be penetrated by hackers is the Department of Energy, which confirmed that the personal information of “several hundred employees” had been compromised. The department said that no classified information was compromised, but did not specify where the attack had come from. This comes after a string of high-profile online attacks, including ones on the New York Times and Washington Post, and a Twitter breech that reportedly targeted many prominent journalists and influencers.
