system for tracking surveillance requests from law enforcement, according to a
The hackers gained access to a database that Google used to process court
orders from law enforcement agencies seeking information about customer
accounts, including classified FISA orders that are used in foreign
intelligence surveillance investigations, according to the Washington Post.
The database contained years’ worth of information on law enforcement
surveillance surveillance orders issued by judges around the country. The
hackers were hoping to discover if law enforcement agents were investigating
undercover Chinese intelligence operatives who were working out of the U.S.

Google’s hackers had gained access to this system.
