A top White House official said a dispersed cyber-attack was executed from within the United States.The US federal investigation of the hack would take several months.Deputy National Security Advisor Anne Neuberger issued a press statement and said, “As of today, 9 federal agencies and about 100 private-sector companies were compromised”.But, she didn’t identify them and said the government hasn’t ruled out the possibility of further victims.The alleged attack was publicly discovered in December but was supposedly executed months earlier.Neuberger added, “The hackers launched the hack from inside the United States which further made it difficult for the US government to observe their activity”.She previously served as NSA’s first Chief Risk Officer, as Director of NSA’s Commercial Solutions Center, as Director of Enduring Security Framework’s cybersecurity public-private partnership, as the Navy’s Deputy Chief Management Officer, and as a White House Fellow.
