The hacking occurred at around the same time that the president sent a tweet touting new steps he’s taking to improve cyber security.

U.S. defense officials have issued a statement confirming their accounts have been compromised and it “is taking appropriate measures to address the matter.”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said they were “obviously looking into” the hacking but had no further information at the time.
