Computer hackers affiliated with Russia breached sensitive parts of the White House digital system, CNN reported Tuesday, citing U.S. officials aware of an ongoing investigation.

These hackers accessed "sensitive information such as real-time non-public details of the president's schedule," according to CNN. And although this information is not strictly classified, it is still valuable to foreign agencies, the report said.

Ben Rhodes, deputy national security advisor to President Barack Obama, told CNN that the White House is "increasingly concerned" about cyber threats, but said it did not believe its classified systems were compromised.
