There are suspicions that Russian entities could be targeting U.S. and Western companies for sanctions imposed by their respective countries. In a somewhat interesting turn of events, hacking group Anonymous has apparently declared [cyber] war against the Russian government.
Good on them but technically its a crime that's punishable for both parties as hacking is hacking and illegal regardless.
Yes, you are. Any company of this size is going to have a cyber security team with the job of preventing attacks like these as well as securing their own software and hardware. Elite level hackers are going to be the best people to employ for such positions.Am I the only one concerned about multi-billion dollar corporations having hackers on their teams who can immediately retaliate in such a manner? What are these corporate hackers doing when they aren't dealing with extortion groups?
