Hackers in China Attacked The NYT for last 4 Months: NYT

Nicole Perlroth with a fantastic and, sadly, none too surprising article for The New York Times.  She says it best: For the last four months, Chinese hackers have persistently attacked The New York Times, infiltrating its computer systems and getting passwords for its reporters and other employees.

Cyber deterrence is working, Hagel tells senators: Foreign Policy

John Reed with some good stuff for Foreign Policy, per usual.  Reed wrote on advance testimony from the SecDef-to-be Chuck Hagel pertaining to cyber-deterrence.  You can find that testimony (on a lot more than just cyber-deterrence) here.  Notably, Mr. Hagel had/will have this to say tomorrow (answers in bold): Do you believe we are deterring […]

Pentagon to dramatically boost cybersecurity force: WashPo

The ever-amazing Ellen Nakashima with a very important article for The Washington Post on how DoD is expanding CyberComm.  According to Nakashima, CyberComm–currently made up “of about 900 personnel”–will increase to about 4,900 “troops and civilians.”  More importantly, Nakashima laid out how CyberComm is going to be divided: The plan calls for the creation of […]

Foreign Hackers are “21st Century Nuclear Weapons” & a cyber 9/11 could happen “imminently”: Reuters/Foreign Policy

A bit of exaggeration here. Deborah Charles reports for Reuters on how DHS Secretary Napolitano said a “‘cyber 9/11’ could happen ‘imminently.’” Foreign Policy’s John Reed writes on John Kerry’s commentary during his Secretary of State confirmation hearings.  Sen. Kerry reasonably suggested the need for “cyber diplomacy,” but then suggested that cyberweapons  are “the 21st-century nuclear weapons […]
