CBS: Someone tampered with reporter’s computer

By David Bauder

NEW YORK (AP) — Private investigators found that CBS News Washington reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was tampered with multiple times late last year, the network said Friday.
CBS said an intruder, working remotely using Attkisson’s accounts, executed commands involving the search and filtering of data. The network said it is taking further steps to identify the intruder and how that person gained access to her computer.

… In an interview with Philadelphia’s WPHT radio on May 21, Attkisson said “there could be some relationship” between what has happened to her and to James Rosen, the chief Washington correspondent for Fox News Channel…

Attkisson said she had been having problems with a computer in her house since at least February 2011. At that time, she said, she was investigating the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ “Fast and Furious” gun-smuggling sting operation and stimulus spending on clean-energy projects. Attkisson won an Emmy award for her “Fast and Furious” investigation.
