Hackers Set to Attack Navy

by platon on July 3rd, 2001 Navy websites are next on hackers list of targets after the US Navy announced a $4.1bn (Ł3.1bn) attempt to secure the Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI).

The five-year project to secure the NMCI, which consists of 350,000 desktops and 200 networks, dispersed around the world, focuses on controlling virus outbreaks and killing malicious code.

The server infrastructure for the NMCI will be consolidated into a small number of server farms to minimise the network access points available to attackers.

Last year the Navy detected 23,662 hacking attempts on its networks, but since the kick-off of its multi-million security efforts, it has spotted only 125 breaches.
