How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Former Top FBI Official Said His Computer Was Penetrated by Chinese Hacker

A Chinese hacker is accused of penetrating the computer of a top former FBI lawyer, Newsweek reports. 

Marion “Spike” Bowman, who also leads an organization of retired American spies, said the hacking began with an innocuous-looking email.

“It was an email supposedly from a woman in China, and I exchanged correspondence with her a couple of times,” said Bowman, who was deputy general counsel to three FBI directors between 1995 and 2006. “She sent me a document that a friend of hers had supposedly written, in English, and wanted my opinion on it,” he told Newsweek.

“I never got around to replying, so I never heard from her again,” Bowman said.

After getting another message from China on his e-mail account at George Washington University, Bowman became suspicious and contacted the FBI.

A forensic examination of his computer “found a malware type that’s designed to find out what’s on my computer,” Bowman said.
