Personal story segment tonight CBS news announced on Friday that investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson this computer is hacked into late last year.
This combined with the James Rosen situation here Fox News and the -- snooping causing a lot of concern.
-- a -- factor cable exclusive is the second set so when did you know that somebody was messing with your computer.
Well there are signs probably around 2011.
But I don't think I recognize exactly what was going on and -- perhaps the fall of last year when so many things were happening in the actress and household somebody sort of strange electronic related things that.
I give me an example design and only about computers community I know very little tip about the computers coming on by themselves at night my personal apple desktop as well as my CBS.
Disappearing we get -- you -- even there just.
Plopped on right.
Okay and I was sleeping so they would come on in another nice sometimes.
One right after the other by the time last fall came around they would sometimes both be starting up kind of a cacophony of computer music at night.
Animosity you had a personal and you had a business computer and they both came -- such a poltergeist.
-- only time.
So what are you working on that might have interest -- somebody.
To try to intrude on on your computer what we worked well you know.
The first thing I thought up some time ago were my personal accounts my finances my passwords and so on but.
Nobody has intruded upon my finances although they had access to them -- terrorists and nobody stole my identity -- got into my bank accounts which they could have.
I'm so I assume the reason they were in the CBS computer is something related to what I was working on and which was what what big stories reworking about the time I was doing fast and furious of course some green energy debacle sort of stimulus spending stories.
And then later on the thing -- -- story.
All right so they were all not not complimentary to the administration.
You were worked out yeah why is Barack Obama so brilliant and Obama -- that's what I do what's whichever administration's an office that's what -- want an -- -- your partisan but I'm saying that this stuff you were going after.
If the information came forth might hurt the Obama administration is that accurate -- a look at.
So -- CBS then you tell CBS news that you think somebody attacking you because your views are coming -- by themselves they send in their tax.
Not exactly I mean I -- more information than just my suspicion by the time I went to CBS I had some how but I can't going to tell us -- you've got some computer geeks to help you find out if indeed you being -- I got some help and then in January this is about January of this past year.
I informed CBS once I knew because this -- CBS issued equipment and they were in the CBS systems and CBS hired an independent forensic firm that came -- looked at the CBS computer and.
And they found out that they you -- were being had been made the announcement on Friday so where does -- go from here.
I guess CBS could sue somebody but you gotta have somebody who's under suspicion right do you have somebody's under suspicion.
Well we're being cautioned you know what to say and what not to -- point I have.
Attorneys at CBS are helping us through this class have personal counsel -- -- -- your counsel saying don't say anything.
This -- -- the same council let the attorney general has -- that -- has it now stroke edge so.
So all of your counsel saying don't accuse anybody rate him.
But -- just telling us what we can say more than anything right now which is you know which which you basically heard that there has been an intrusion of the computer this is not fishing.
This is not malware this is not an ordinary as someone asks me.
Old boyfriend trying to look through my files this and this is -- yeah.
Yeah and -- it in order to go after somebody you've got to have a suspicion.
And I assume you have a suspicion you don't have to tell me I don't -- -- get your lawyers mad but I assume you have a suspicion I think -- now.
But I am just not prepared to go -- that so.
We're continuing our investigation -- multifaceted.
You know looks at what to do next and we'll show you got to break it on the show.
I mean I didn't get a break at the CBS land that may argue that.
But and then you have to come here because.
It's a big story.
You know -- -- and everything I mean it's a big story if it's if it's organized in the from the federal government.
Snoop in on your computer we got to know let me just say who ever did that to come into a private citizens home when I'm a journalist or not and look -- my family's computer.
And look at my work computer -- sort of like seeing your butt off.
Why does someone -- thought it's outrageous OK Marshall thanks for coming and we -- you can dispose and you promise I didn't you know -- -- if you -- I am.
