- Defense officials have long suspected the Chinese military uses civilian computer experts to carry out cyber attacks on American companies and federal agencies. Now, for the first time, the Pentagon is issuing public warnings about the practice. In a new report, DOD brass say they are convinced the People's Liberation Army is using information warfare units to develop virus attacks on enemy computer systems and networks. But the linkage between the Chinese military and civilian hacking experts is difficult to prove. A spokesman tells the AP, the Pentagon will monitor the PLA's buildup of its cyberwarfare capabilities, and continue to develop counter capabilities.
- Federal News Radio told you about two major IT vendors buying information security companies. Intel is purchasing McAfee and Hewlett Packard is buying Fortify. GovInfoSecurity reports that this reflects the narrowing gap between IT and IT security...but that not all companies are able to blend cybersecurity with IT. The reason, they say, is because embedding security in existing products is helpful, but hard to manage. However, they also say you can expect the trend to continue as cybersecurity becomes more top-of-mind for IT companies.
