At 5:30 a.m. Marjorie Murray was beginning her morning routine
of reviewing her goals-a practice she’d developed to keep from
losing touch with them in a job with an inbox always stuﬀed
with distracting problems. Because she was awake at that early

Communications System console squawked an alert and displayed
the message. It was obviously not a message that should have gotten
through to the president of the United States. She’d been hacked.
