A brief look at the news is enough for anyone to realize that cyber attacks are a real threat. Just recently, we’ve seen western governments strongly condemn Russia for hacking attacks. We also saw a couple of reports that claimed that China could backdoor into products using hardware implants — although one of them was strongly refuted. And we shared a story about Google+ suffering from a serious security issue that Google was afraid to tell the public about.
With all that in mind, you’d expect the Pentagon’s newest weapons to be protected by all sorts of complex systems meant to thwart cyber attacks. It turns out that’s not the case.
