Homeland Security Today | Nov 3, 2014

Cybersecurity experts said they aren’t at all surprised hackers US officials believe work for the Russian government were able to hack into at least unclassified White House computer networks in recent weeks.

“The reconnaissance attack on the White House is a dramatic reminder of a general truth: whenever we look for any kind of attack, we find that yes, indeed, it is happening,” said Dr. Mike Lloyd, CTO at RedSeal, a provider of end-to-end network visibility and analytics to prevent cyber attacks.
