Report Disputes Hacking Claims by Former CBS Reporter

A Justice Department report is disputing hacking allegations by former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson.

Attkisson claims the government hacked into her personal computer and work laptops were remotely accessed due to her reporting on topics including the Fast and Furious scandal and the terror attacks in Benghazi.

Attkisson provided the inspector general's office with recorded videos showing the screen of her CBS-issued laptop.

One video showed what was determined to be a standard error prompt, the report said. A second video that showed text from a document she was creating on a Macbook laptop being deleted without her apparent involvement actually "appeared to be caused by the backspace key being struck, rather than a remote intrusion," according to the report.

The Justice Department's report said, "the OIG's investigation was not able to substantiate the allegations that Attkisson's computers were subject to remote intrusion by the FBI, other government personnel, or otherwise."
