A 12-Year-Old Could Hack Most Companies


Recommended Posts

nothing we werent already aware of but its now making newz..


As the White House meets with CEOs on the topic of cybersecurity, one expert said that even young amateurs pose risks to corporate computer systems and the U.S. economy.

"It's so easy to get into corporate networks that a determined 12-year-old with good Internet access could download the tools," said James Lewis, senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, who advises Congress and the Obama administration on cybersecurity.

"Ninety percent of the successful attacks require only the most basic techniques. It's time to grow up and admit that the Internet is not a safe neighborhood and we have to do different things than just sort of go on assuming that it's blissfully safe."

"Espionage, crime, that's easy. Physical destruction still turns out to be hard," Lewis said on CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" Wednesday, "But people are developing the skills, people are developing the tools. If we stay on the path we are on now, we will see those attacks and that is why the president is meeting with people."

The airplane control probably is dated and not scalable.


Most of these big espionage hacks are just phishing and drive bys. The US gov has stupid people who don't know what encryption and MAC is. Which is funny because that DEFCON guy is suppose to be designing their security. They should get a primary school kid from Russia to do their security XD
