Cyber Espionage … awe hell its just plain old espionage. But it is apparently being conducted on behalf of one particular state. No, they won’t tell us which one:
McAfee believes the attacks were orchestrated by a nation-state, but it has not named that country. The attackers stole information and intellectual property that could be used for both political and military gain. “With the majority of the data, we don’t fully know what it’s being used for,” Dmitri Alperovitch, vice president of threat research for McAfee, said during a press conference on Wednesday.
I’m guessing since 49 percent of the victims are from the US either it is the target or the perp. Interesting times.
