International Cybercrime Is Real

An official US report released today makes some surprising allegations against various countries around the world. Apparently US officials have enough evidence to believe that Russian and Chinese agencies are engaged in online espionage which has compromised untold amounts of data from the United States.

This has reportedly been going on for some time and due to the nature of the technology nobody is quite sure exactly what information has been stolen. Officials say that the various governments and private agencies have likely stolen dozens of confidential and incredibly sensitive designs or plans over the years.

As always the details of how the attacks were carried out were left out of the report; no word on what the government plans to do to stop this sort of online espionage but it seems that even the U.S. government is not secure enough. The era of internet security is now and it is quite clear that nobody really knows what they are doing.
