Norwegian Military Hit by Cyber Attack
A day after the country's fighter jets bombed Libya, a military computer was compromised.
A cyber attack hit military computers in Norway in late March, one day after Norwegian fighter jets bombed Libya.
"On March 25, about 100 military employees received an email in Norwegian that included an attachment that installed a data-stealing Trojan when opened, Agence France-Presse reported," writes The Register's Dan Goodin. "The news service, citing the Norwegian Defense Information Infrastructure, said only one computer containing non-classified information was compromised."
"'The army is regularly the target of cyber and virus attacks, but not as extensive as this,' AFP quoted INI spokeswoman Hilde Lindboe as saying," writes The Register's Dan Goodin.
