Cyber-crime is not only limited to within countries or inside them. It’s prevailing between countries, and especially on national level between the government of many countries. A recent issue in this scenario has been highlighted in the report by US Senate on Wednesday. The report was a detailed one on the cyber-crime involved on national level and all the details relating to it. Truth be told, the report involved about 50 cyber-attacks from China to US involving the stealing of military information including civilian air, shopping and other military transportation related transactions and data regarding that.
The major military transportation companies are Transportation Command and Transcom, birth were the victims of the cyber-crime carried out by the agencies in China. Further on the 52 – page report stated that particularly Transcom which had hits around 50 intrusions, knew only about 20 of them amongst which it was only able to stop 2 of them. The stolen information included files, user passwords, computer codes and emails. This report was issued after a very long time detailing the period from June 1, 2012. China has long denied the allegations put on its agencies on this issue and still there are several cyber-attacks on US military level as well as corporate level. A recent example a month ago was when a Chinese businessman hacked into Boeing and other defense contractors to steal the military related information but however did not succeed. Another example was when 5 Chinese businessmen retired to indict into the corporate level companies and steal all sort of related and confidential data. US government has repeatedly informed China off its alleged activities but however there has been no fruitful response. However after this report birth the countries have agreed to hold meetings on national level as to discuss the cyber-crime activities as they can undermine the relation bitter the countries have.
The report completed in March of this year states the techniques employed by China to steal the confidential data and perform this treacherous act. The report also states that due to these activities, US government faces a loss of trends of billions of dollars in maintaining the security level and covering up the data lots. However this indeed has given US New methods to protects its data and apply more secure parameters for its safety.
Looking at the report and the recent issues relating to cyber activity, the Congress has not yet passed the NDAA of this year, so as the number one priority is to work a remedy on these cyber-bad-national-activities.
