We have conveyed the report of a reader we believe to be a knowledgeable source regarding a serious problem affecting the computer network serving the Executive Office of the President. We have called and written the White House press office seeking a response to the report since this past Thursday morning. The White House has failed to respond. In his most recent message, our source reports:
EOP employees told to think very carefully about what personal information might have been located on their computers – still “weeks away” from a fix.
I’ll send this report along to the White House for a comment as well, but at this point I think it’s fair to assume they’re not going to have anything to say to us.
