In this article I found the following very scary comment:
"Telecommunications companies in China displayed false computer data that rerouted about 15 percent of the world's online traffic last April through Chinese Internet servers for about 17 minutes, affecting NASA, the U.S. Senate, the four branches of the military, the office of the Secretary of Defense and a number of Fortune 500 companies."
Four branches of the U.S. Military were affected??? How could the U.S. have such lax security measures in place which would allow such an intrusion? Why is the Chinese Government denying this situation when it is of such a serious nature?? What if these attacks caused the U.S. to think it was being attacked by a foreign power and they started to mobilize troops and weapons??
The Chinese Government should admit they are part of the problem and cooperate with the U.S. in finding these hackers. If they do not then we have to believe that the Chinese Government was involved in these Cyber attacks don't we??
What do Government officials in Britain call these attacks?
"A cyber attack by one state on another could be considered an "act of war", Tony Blair's former top national security adviser has said."
To read another perspective on this situation I refer you to the article entitled, "Cyber war threat exaggerated claims security expert" which you can read by clicking on the following link:
