Russians hacked Pentagon network


CNN - (International) The U.S. Secretary of Defense announced April 23 that in early 2015 hackers from Russia discovered an old vulnerability in a legacy network at the Pentagon in Virginia, which allowed the hackers to access an unclassified network. The breach was immediately detected and technicians worked to kick the unauthorized users off the network and minimize any chances of returning.
