CONFIRMED: Trump called emergency meeting to address global cyber hack


As we reported earlier today, there is a global hacking taking place and it’s about to get worse experts say.  Reports that President Donald Trump called an emergency meeting with Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert on Friday to address the cyber threat were confirmed by a CBS News correspondent via twitter on Sunday.

Mark Knoller of CBS News tweeted: “Official confirms emergency WH meetings Friday and Saturday to assess global cyber attack. Cyber attack meetings convened by WH Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert at direction of Pres Trump, official confirms.”

The meetings come after an immense global computer ransomware attack occurred all last week.  The hack is said to have been conducted using NSA hacking tools that were leaked online. The attack hit 150 countries and at least 100,000 organizations, according to Europe’s police agency. The “unprecedented” attack is believed to be the biggest online extortion attack to ever occur.

The meetings to evaluate the cyber threat were held in the White House on Friday and Saturday, as The National Security Agency (NSA) and FBI continued to try to identify the perpetrators of the attack, according to Reuters.

It’s predicted that on Monday, as people return to work and use their computers, more damage could be done
