Hackers claim to have compromised a computer at the National Security Agency in Ft. Meade, Maryland. But their target was the least secretive organization imaginable within the massive intelligence agency: the public affairs office.

And instead of scoring a cache of highly-classified documents about the NSA's global surveillance work, the purported hackers mostly just obtained a few biographies of agency personnel, and a handful of private, but routine, correspondences between NSA spokespersons and media outlets, including CNN and Forbes.

The letters arrived at SecurityFocus Thursday morning as attachments to a short e-mail message listing the Internet IP and e-mail addresses for the agency's public affairs office, and the message "Please find attached some documents from Don and Trisha Weber, NSA."

A NSA spokesperson confirmed that Don Weber works in the office, but otherwise declined to comment.

Good thing the NSA didn't know about the hacker getting in with any kind of IDS - they'd have to arrest themselves for violating Federal Wiretapping ... Oh, I forgot. They're the NSA - they're the ones who are allowed to wiretap anyone ... :rolleyes:
