Reporting from Washington -- Senior military leaders took the exceptional
step of briefing President Bush this week on a severe and widespread
electronic attack on Defense Department computers that may have originated
in Russia -- an incursion that posed unusual concern among commanders and
raised potential implications for national security.
Defense officials would not describe the extent of damage inflicted on
military networks. But they said that the attack struck hard at networks
within U.S. Central Command, the headquarters that oversees U.S. involvement
in Iraq and Afghanistan, and affected computers in combat zones. The attack
also penetrated at least one highly protected classified network.
