Hackers Post U.S. Troops’ Personal Details; Collateral Damage From The Korean Cyberwar?

 

 

” Hackers have leaked personal information about 40,000 U.S. troops, including thousands stationed in South Korea, reports said Wednesday, a day after cyberattacks knocked government and news websites offline in Seoul.

Reuters reported the posting, citing an unnamed executive from a South Korean online security form, NSHC. “We have seen the sites where the details were posted and clips that supposedly capture the process of hacking into websites,” the news agency quoted its source as saying.

Reuters said the hackers also claimed to have released the personal details of more than 2 million members of the South Korean ruling political party.

The report came on the heels of what appeared to be a large-scale cyberattack on South Korean government and news websites, that successfully, if temporarily, knocked more than a dozen of them offline.”

 

   Apparently our government is better at mining our personal data than protecting it … Another indicator of the adversarial nature that has been fostered between the people and the STATE.
