The hack happened as President Barack Obama was preparing a major speech on cybersecurity.His spokesman Josh Earnest said the US is looking into the Centcom hacking. He said they were investigating the extent of the incident, and that there was a significant difference between a large data breach and the hacking of a Twitter account.
