Chinese hackers seek U.S. access


The cyberattack of a U.S. military computer system has deepened concern about cyberspying and the security of the Internet's infrastructure.

Chinese hackers were most likely behind an intrusion in November that disabled the Naval War College's network, forcing it to disconnect from the Internet for several weeks, says Lt. Cmdr. Doug Gabos, a spokesman for the Navy Cyber Defense Operations Command in Norfolk, Va.

Forensic analysis indicates the hackers may have sought information on war games in development at the naval college, he said. The college was vulnerable because it did not have the latest security protections, Gabos said. Chinese hackers seek U.S. access - USATODAY.com
