Hackers May Have Had Access to John Kelly's Phone for Months

07 October, 2017, 00:37
Now, three official sources are telling POLITICO that the personal cellphone Trump's chief of staff John Kelly may have been compromised back in December. The White House did not release any official information on the matter, but it did run a one-page memo in September, which circulated throughout the administration.
Citing at least three United States government officials, the report said that the phone may have been compromised in December, last year. They are also uncertain of what data could have been seen or stolen.
Kelly said at the time that his personal phone hadn't been working properly for months - a tell-tale sign that it may have been hijacked by malware that gave outsiders access to the device's secrets.
He isn't the first president to have phone security issues. When he turned the phone in to the White House" IT department in the summer, Kelly complained that the phone had not been working properly for "months'.

Sam Kassoumeh, the CEO of SecurityScorecard, a security intelligence company, said that Android phones can carry the risk of being vulnerable to hackers, according to Wired.
A White House spokesman said that since joining the administration, Kelly didn't use his personal phone much and that he's used a government-issued phone for official communications and any call made from inside the White House. This contrasts Trump and his supporters' consistent criticism of Hilary Clinton using a personal email server for official business.
It's unclear how bad the hack is, or where Kelly's phone was infected with the malware.
