Nation-state hackers hit Cisco switches
Hackers, some of them backed by a nation-state, have attacked Cisco switches in multiple countries, the tech giant’s cyberthreat intelligence division has revealed.
Some of the attacks “are believed to be associated with nation-state actors, such as those described” in a recent Department of Homeland Security report that said Russian government hackers were targeting multiple U.S. industries, Cisco said…
Tony Cole, CTO of cybersecurity firm Attivo Networks, told CyberScoop that the attacks on Cisco switches showed that organizations are still slow to detect advanced hackers that have breached their networks. “Today’s preventative-focused security infrastructure is and will continue to be somewhat inept at stopping attacks,” Cole said.
