Two hackers who cracked the email accounts of the CIA’s director, the chief of National Intelligence and many others, were arrested. According to Court documents, FBI investigators revealed the important information regarding this case. As a matter of fact, Andrew Otto Boggs and Justin Gray Liverman tricked technical support staff into giving them access to the sensitive email accounts.
