Fionn Hargreaves reports:

A schoolboy hacker impersonated a CIA director to gain access to top secret military reports, a court heard yesterday.

Kane Gamble was just 15 when he posed as CIA chief John Brennan from his Leicestershire home, even taking control of his wife’s iPad.

The teenager gained access to passwords, personal information, security details, contacts lists and sensitive documents about operations in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Gamble, who founded the pro-Palestinian group ‘Crackas With Attitude’, taunted the security service on Twitter about his successes.
