WASHINGTON, May 14 (Reuters) – The FBI is getting more
aggressive in pursuing cyber criminals and expects to announce
searches, indictments and multiple arrests over the next several
weeks, the agency’s official in charge of combating cyber crime
said on Wednesday.
“There is a philosophy change. If you are going to attack
Americans, we are going to hold you accountable,” the FBI’s
Robert Anderson told the Reuters Cybersecurity Summit in
Washington. “If we can reach out and touch you, we are going to
reach out and touch you.”
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Iranian hackers have become increasingly aggressive and sophisticated, moving from disrupting and defacing U.S. websites to engaging in cyber espionage, security experts say.
According to Silicon Valley-based cybersecurity company FireEye Inc (FEYE.O: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz), a group called the Ajax Security Team has become the first Iranian hacking group known to use custom-built malicious software to launch espionage campaigns.
