Top cybersecurity firm FireEye hacked, evidence points to Russian intelligence

The cybersecurity firm FireEye said its systems were successfully targeted by state-sponsored hackers, and tools were stolen from a digital vault that could be repurposed to stage new attacks worldwide. CBSN technology reporter Dan Patterson joins Anne-Marie Green on “CBSN AM” to talk about the ramifications of the brazen hack.

    Hack the biggest Hacker.

    Why are all the stories blaming Russia.
    There seems to be not a shred of proof. In fact, China was, yesterday, regarded as having the best hackers and was the best State Actor in Cyber Warfare !
    It does matter that we have PROOF. Without proper proof, all we have is purposeful misdirection.
    Who is responsible and why?

    Highly irresponsible reporting. What if it did behave exactly like Windows? Or Russians? It does not mean Windows is the attacker. When he said cozy bear, I fell out of my chair laughing. Attribution is fraud. If I wear an Italian suit , it does not mean I am Italian. Bad logic and not accurate reporting and highly irresponsible. The terminology used makes me believe this guy reads a lot of blogs. Some of his techy jargon is used out of context.

    I actually think it has been opened up by trumps new defense people he appointed, so he can turn around and say see I won! Point the attacks happened in 2016 against hilary. And that is why putin says it happened then and if it happened now it’s obvious who it come from. So surprise.. it makes trump look like he won election. , point is he didn’t win in the first place 4 years ago cause it was hacked then alleged…I also believe putin means us no harm..if so he would of done long time ago..this is another fear mongol tactic so trump can say…see I won!

    Just praying for your sins to be forgiven, and saying the name of Jesus at the end of your prayer will not make your sins that are red as scarlet be white as snow. In this time of disaster and pandemic like COVID-19 Fathe God is calling you now to come before His Word, and be guided into all Truth through the Spirit of Truth, and truly wash away your sins. 2

    I’m embarrassed for the US. You can’t get anything right. Your enemies could shut you down tomorrow. They used your invention to attack you,. Remember Custer’s last stand. The native tribes used repeater rifles made in the US. The big guy always falls the hardest! The planes used in 9/11 wee made in America and so on………..

  15. bretticeman07 on March 13, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    Russia, if you’re listening, We want to know what’s in the covid-19 vaccine.

    Any chance SolarWind’s codes were outsourced to offshore "software engineers"?

  23. Panser Yesthatisall on March 13, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    He helped me get some info such as whatsapp, facebook, text messages, call logs and even phone conversations that I helped needed for proof of his secretive
    affair, the first time we spoke, we had a very long phone consultation in which he gave me all my options that he could think of to resolve my case, and he
    even recommended I try other options before hiring him, which shows that he is honest. I decided to hire him and I am glad I did. He is a fantastic.
    investigator and a great person, to all loyal partners out there if you have a dishonest be partner don’t hesitate to contact him via on

    Solarwind sucks. It seems like nobody is monitoring. You are just using AI. Get a real Admin, Network and Developer to create your tools.

  38. Tim R on March 13, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    CBSN jumps to conclusions. Russia on the brain. FIREEYE and all the experts today say no one can say it was RUSSIA…. WTF does these media outlets want to do, start a real physical war, like WWIII? One would think good journalism would be smarter than inserting opinions given with the facts. Nobody can tell the difference of when opinion is being injected to the facts they are reporting. They are not real journalist, but propaganda authors telling a tilted story like normal.
