Over the past 5 years, an internet hacking, or “Cyber Attack” campaign has been infiltrating the networks of a total of 72 institutions throughout the world. The victims include multiple governments, agencies, organizations, and companies. Today, McAfee released an official report, disclosing the list of victims, and suggests the attack originated in China.
Cyber Attacks have been addressed in the past, however last month, the Pentagon has released guidelines stipulating how cyber-attacks will be handled in the future, and permits the U.S. military to take action, if necessary.
Kenneth C. Wisnefski, founder and CEO of WebiMax, was interviewed on FOX News in late June discussing the new internet security measures. Wisnefski, a well-regarded expert in internet security, stated that “The most interesting part that comes to play is the different type of warfare we're looking at today, versus the type that we as an American assembly are used to from World War II and Vietnam”.
The report states that in 2008, hackers entered the United Nation in Geneva and secretly searched through 2 years-worth of documents and data. One can only imagine the extent of the damage.
Internet security has become top priority amongst government and companies to counter the new “cyber terrorism” that is popping up all over the world. “The new pentagon regulation is a step in the right direction”, as Wisnefski discusses in his interview with FOX.
