There is no additional information to report, however the Pentagon email system is back online after facing a recent cyber attack suspected to have been conducted by Russian actors:
The Joint Chiefs of Staff’s unclassified email system is back online, defense officials tell NBC News, more than two weeks after it was the target of a cyberattack believed to have been carried out by Russian hackers.
Pentagon officials told NBC News the Joint Chiefs email system was restored Sunday, following an intensive “scrub” meant to eliminate any potential malware that may have been implanted. Additional security measures were also installed, the officials said. The system was originally scheduled to be back online Friday.
It would be nice to know what vulnerability what exploited so the rest of the world can ensure they are protected. I find it a bit unnerving when the Pentagon refuses to publicly disclose the reason why they were breached, as it feels a bit like there is something nefarious taking place.
