Pentagon cyber attacked in 2008
Wednesday - 8/25/2010, 8:30am EDT
- Yes, the Pentagon HAS been hacked. In what appears to be the first public confirmation that a foreign intelligence agency breached military computers, Deputy Defense Secretary William J. Lynn reportedly tells Foreign Policy Magazine it all started with a flash drive. CBS reports the article, to be published today, says as a result the Defense Department subsequently banned the use of flash drives in 2008. That policy has since been changed.
- Mobile apps aren't as safe as you might think. ComputerWeekly.com reports that security professionals have long suspected that app store checks are not foolproof, and mobile operating systems have vulnerabilities. The problem is that mobile devices, their software, and their applications are often rushed to market, and security is not a top priority. Some apps might upload malware or exploit holes in operating systems. Cyber criminals might start using apps that'll install a back door on your device that can do anything from reveal your banking information to using your iPhone or Droid to send spam.
