White House Press Secretary Jay Carney downplayed a report that Chinese hackers had infiltrated a secure national security network used to control nuclear codes, saying the perpetrators breached an “unclassified” system.

There is “no indication whatsoever that exfiltration of data” occurred, he told reporters at a gaggle held in the Nevada hotel President Obama is using for debate prep. Such attacks, he added, “are not infrequent.”

The White House confirmed to POLITICO earlier Monday that there was an attempted hack but also tried to downplay the breach.
