United States’ Secretary of State Anthony Blinken walked out after speaking on refugee programs for Afghans who have assisted the United States during a briefing at the State Department in Washington, DC.
According to a Fox News reporter this past Sunday, the US State Department has been hit by a cyber attack and notifications of a potentially serious breach have been made by the Department of Defense Cyber Command. A well trusted source reached out to Reuters explaining that the United States’ State Department had not experienced any interruptions, nor were their day to day operations interrupted in any way.
“Fox News reported that the breach allegedly took place weeks ago. It is not known when it was first discovered, according to the reporter’s tweet thread. The extent of the breach and whether or not there is an ongoing risk to the operations are also unclear”, according to The Bharat Express News.
While not good, the disruption also didn’t affect the work Americans are doing to rescue Allied Refugees in Afghanistan. The spokesperson failed to give many further details on the attack. “For security reasons, we are unable to discuss the nature or scope of any suspected cybersecurity incident at this time,” the spokesperson said.
