CISA Warns Foreign Cyberhack Much Larger Than Reported

According to The Wall Street Journal, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley and Democrat Sen. Ron Wyden sent a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig on Thursday requesting a briefing.

Given the extreme sensitivity of personal taxpayer information entrusted to the IRS, and the harm both to Americans’ privacy and our national security that could result from the theft and exploitation of this data by our adversaries, it is imperative that we understand the extent to which the IRS may have been compromised,” they wrote.

The FBI, CISA, and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released a joint statement on Wednesday stating the “cybersecurity campaign” was “significant and ongoing.” The groups established a Cyber Unified Coordination Group to respond to the crisis and warned that “while we continue to work to understand the full extent of this campaign, we know this compromise has affected networks within the federal government.”
