Hackers target US-Russian exercise

Don't panic

Hackers in the US attempted to disrupt a combined US-Russian exercise aimed at dealing with major natural disasters, reported AFP quoting the ITAR-TASS news agency.

ITAR-TASS received its information from the Russian ministry of emergency situations. They probably received it form someone else in turn.

According to reports a database came under fire but hackers failed to gain entry.

Everything's all hunky-dory now and the panic is over.

Which is a relief, you know, to world peace and all that. ®
