The world web is defenseless against the ingenious hacker. A series of cyber attacks against major US Internet resources at the beginning of February demonstrated that hackers are gradually reorienting cyber attacks to serve as geopolitical weapons. After Facebook reported that it had come under a “sophisticated hacker attack”, western media outlets said Chinese hackers had a hand in it.
According to IT expert Vladimir Konev, the Chinese could well have been involved considering their passion for illegal use of foreign IT technologies."China has often been blamed for hacking Internet resources in order to steal data. It has an extensive network of programming and hacking schools."
