Pentagon Lays Out Cyberwar PlansThe Pentagon has laid out plans to deal with cyberwar, and has named China, Russia, Iran and North Korea, as the top potential adversaries.

According to this report, Defense Secretary Ashton B. Carter, in a speech at Stanford University, said “The sensors that guard DoD’s unclassified networks detected Russian hackers accessing one of our networks,” taking advantage of “an old vulnerability in one of our legacy networks that hadn’t been patched.”

Carter provided his definition of a major cyberattack being “something that threatens significant loss of life, destruction of property or lasting economic damage.”
