Media: Hackers obtained 134 data from thousands of US Navy personnel

At the headquarters of the naval forces of the United States reported that the theft of personal data of seafarers became known in October, when relevant information was provided to the agency by Hewlett Packard. Employees of the company serving the US Navy, said that the servers were subjected to cyber attacks, from which the company could not defend itself.

It is noteworthy that this is not the first incident of its kind with data served by Hewlett Packard. So, just three years ago to American databases fleet, which at that time served HP, received Iran. At least, it was Iran itself that the representatives of Hewlett Packard indicated.

The US Navy states that at this stage an incident is being investigated with an attempt to identify the perpetrators of the attack. In connection with the latest events, it is quite possible to assume that the States will again “discover” either the “Iranian” or the “Russian trace”. It does not yet say whether the cooperation of the US Navy with Hewlett Packard, which, in fact, cannot ensure the safety of fleet data, will continue.

      Another argument in favor of the fact that our IO needs to think 1000 times before translating the personal files of military personnel into electronic format. You can’t do this!

    I don’t give a damn about who will be appointed guilty of penetration - we are no longer accustomed to hearing unfounded accusations. But the company that carries out computer security of the Navy is worth changing. Also, probably on tenders and pullbacks win tenders. And for our example, according to which one should put things in order.

    They’re rams, but how to assess the actions of our MO that made the decision to switch to electronic identification of military personnel, and even created a vinaigrette on the map from admissions to visiting the dining room and the dentist ??? How not to protect the data - they will inevitably leak through holes in the multifunctional network, and they will never be closed, and how not to encrypt the information, it will still have ultimate durability.

    At the same time, it is not yet said whether the US naval cooperation with Hewlett Packard will continue, which, in fact, cannot ensure the security of the fleet's data.
    The US Navy would do well to consult on this issue with at least Sberbank of Russia. There will be more sense.

    The main danger of the disclosure of personal data - finally, the world learns about the number of non-traditional employees of the Navy.
