Massive data breach of US Gov and private companies
« on: December 17, 2020, 08:46:28 PM »
Any thoughts on the discovery of months of data breaches by sophisticated and coordinated hackers... US government agencies and private companies compromised, as yet there is little sense of even the magnitude of data that has been accessed and/or stolen because hackers hid their presence so well.

CNN and I think BBC are tentatively reporting a Russian connection, but haven't provided anything of substance to back it up.

The articles I've been able to find all lack any real insights and the whole story isnt really taking off in Main Stream feeds.

Anyone else have any better links?

The crazy thing is that SolarWinds only found out because FireEye (who uses SolarWinds themselves) got breached and during their investigation, they found out it was through a SolarWinds vulnerability. I'm sure SW would have found out eventually, but one has to wonder how much longer it would have been if FireEye hadn't tipped them off.

Any other year this would be the biggest story going...

The fact that they have no clue how far it goes or for how long it was happening is wild.

And even the nuclear security administration was breached

First I heard of it.  Fucking christ....
If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

The silence from Kremlin West is deafening.
Distance from Sydney to Perth - We don't know.
