Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The CIA will wage a cyberwar on Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic, using hackers for a sabotage campaign. US president Bill Clinton has ordered the clandestine plan, which includes hacking into Milosevic's foreign bank accounts. It is understood that the US will also try to grind down his public support this way. Clinton issued an intelligence "finding", authorising the CIA to find "ways to get at Milosevic". This would permit it to train ethnic Albanians from the troubled Kosovo province in the art of cutting phone lines, polluting petrol and stealing food, according to Newsweek. The plan could threaten internal relationships within NATO, as other allies had been kept in the dark. "If they pull it off, it will be great," said a government expert. "If they screw it up, they are going to be in a world of trouble." A US official denied plans for the secret war. ®
