Report: Hackers say Mar-a-Lago is vulnerable to cyberattack

There’s been a lot of talk about hacking in the political world since a global cyberattack hit over 120 countries last week.

America is still investigating whether the Russians interfered with the 2016 presidential election, and now, it appears the so-called winter White House could be at risk. President Trump has spent most weekends as president at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and a new experiment has found its internet may not be secure.
