China behind Cyber Attacks
Titan Rain was the U.S. government’s designation given to a series of coordinated attacks on American computer systems. Titan Rain hackers gained access to many U.S. computer networks, including those at Lockheed Martin, Sandia National Laboratories, Redstone Arsenal, and NASA. At the International Crime Science Conference held in London, UK security expert, John Walker, CTO of forensics consultancy Secure-Bastion, said that the Chinese government was behind the ‘Titan Rain’ attacks. The academic made his comments during a Q&A session when he was asked about state-sponsored terrorism. The attacks were identified as coming from servers in China, but the Chinese government has never officially been accused of being behind the assault. The International Crime Science Conference is organised by the Centre for Security and Crime Science at University College London.
