America is caught by the enemy number 2 and is preparing to slaughter

June 8 2005

Pissed at the whole world the Pentagon (he was recently not much luck) to find, finally, his long-time offender - he was an unemployed American system administrator - and intends to cut it under the nut. At one time, the Pentagon Napara with NASA, as well as several other organizations "hit" on a $ 1 million. This is the most high-profile case against a hacker .

39-year-old computer programmer from the UK without a specific job is charged that between February 2001 and March 2002, terrorized the American authorities and one by one illegally "hacked" 53 Computer Department of Defense, National Aeronautics and Space Administration USA (NASA), and along with the U.S. Navy.

The attacker, who is credited with unprecedented brazenness and scale of hacking, which is already recorded in the annals of black horrified the Pentagon, appeared in court. It is not excluded that the democratic American: in England, where he was detained an unemployed handyman, in the near future will address the issue of his extradition.

Meanwhile, according to Washington, Gary McKinnon, known in the online medium as a SOLO, "the legacy of nearly 1 million U.S. dollars - it is in such an amount estimated the damage from its activities. And now, if the wine McKinnon will be proved, it expects a fine, at least at the 1.75 million "green" and 70 years in prison.

As stated in the charge sheet, an attacker managed to infiltrate into an army computer network at Fort Myer, Virginia, and get administrative rights, and, having enjoyed tickling nerves of the game, delete the "client" database - approximately 1500 accounts. Then he also erased the system files, which led to a massive collapse of the entire system. In New Jersey, McKinnon got a network of 300 computers store naval weapons in Colts Neck. And the list of unlawful acts on this by no means definitive. Apparently, the verdict also drags - pereplyunet a thunderstorm Pentagon molester Michael Jackson?

U.S. authorities and representatives of the law did not fail on this occasion to note that the illegal invasion of American institutional network is quite sharp. During the 12 months was recorded whole series of attempts to hack more than 90 networks that provide job branched War Department and NASA over the country.

Regarding the case of Gary McKinnon, the ad hoc committee responsible for investigating, again haunted by an age-old question: "Why?" Because the information that could extract a hacker, no interest from the standpoint of benefit.

U.S. authorities are angry rather in connection with another: the most cynical crime was committed by a hacker in 2001. When immediately after September 11 McKinnon for joy "messed up" networks of the naval base in Earle Colts Neke where the database resides on the arms of the Atlantic Fleet USA.

Computer geniuses yet all the younger and pluck. Last year, it became clear that the burglary networks Pentagon, NASA and Cisco Systems is a Swedish 16-year-old "safecracker."

In the same year twenty-California resident was arrested for unauthorized entry into computers federal dollars.He was charged with unlawful access to computer systems of information service of the defense logistics and Health Administration U.S. Department of Defense and NASA research center.

The experts all over the world predicted a further increase in attacks on the servers of the largest organizations and agencies and frightening world collapse.
