A “stoner teen” upset with American foreign policy has allegedly hacked Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan’s email.

According to Fox News:

“An American high school student and self-proclaimed stoner may have uncovered a huge security breach after hacking the personal email of CIA Director John Brennan.

The AOL email account reportedly included the Social Security numbers and personal info of more than a dozen top U.S. intelligence officials.

The hacker has posted some of the information on Twitter, including Brennan’s email contact list.

He recently contacted the NY Post to brag about his exploits, saying he used a tactic called “social engineering,” which “involved tricking workers at Verizon into providing Brennan’s personal information and duping AOL into resetting his password.”

The hacker said he is an American high school student who smokes marijuana. He is not Muslim but is motivated by opposition to American policy and solidarity with Palestinians.

His Twitter bio includes the Muslim Shahada, which translates as, “There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”
