Chinese hackers have penetrated the White House computer network on 
multiple occasions, and obtained e-mails between government officials, a 
senior US official told the FT.

The cyber attackers managed to penetrate the White House system for 
brief periods that allowed them to steal information before US 
government experts each time patched the system.

US government cyber experts suspect the attacks were sponsored by the 
Chinese government, although they cannot say for definite.

=E2=80=9CWe are getting very targeted Chinese attacks so its stretches credulity 
that these are not directed by government-related organisations,=E2=80=9D said 
the official.
