    Looks like the Russians are up to no good again.

    Quoted from the article:


    "The indications are it was something coming out of a group of hackers in Russia. It was not particularly political, as far as we can tell," said the official, who asked not to be named."

    Sounds all rather vague to me - surely no hard evidence or something even coming close to it.

    Could be true - could be false.

    regards.

    Curious little article. From Russia I don't hear about anti US sentiment running particularly high right now. Could be tied to the impending war with Iraq.
    Probably kiddies. I doubt the State Dept. knows how to secure their site very well at all. :D

    Just to remind again:

    This is a computer/internet security forum and not a political forum.


    Thread will be closed.
    Final decision, as always, is up to Paul.
