The following article seems to point towards Russia possibly testing/using a computer virus against Britain, which sent RAF and RN emails and data to
servers inside Russia.
THE Ministry of Defence is investigating a major breach in security amid claims that all e-mail traffic from a number of RAF stations has been sent to
a Russian internet server.
Should the article be true it seems as though there's a major security fault, which, in the case of war could be totally devastating.
My questions are; If Russia are the one's responsible why would they risk the chance of being caught? / giving a potential secret 'weapon' away?
Unless they're pulling a bluff and just testing the security in light of a more powerful version they may own?
If it wasn't the Russians responsible then who may be, and what's their agenda?
How could a major world power lack such security measures, and what does this say in regards to possible future threats of such a 'weapon'?
(I searched a few times and didn't find any other posts in regard to this, but it's possible I've missed one and if so I apologise)
