-digital espionage is becoming more aggressive




The networks of the Dutch army, which suppliers of Defense, and other systems of the Netherlands and its allies are attacked more often. This is evident from the annual report of the Military Intelligence and Security. The spy is also increasingly aggressive.

The attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated, according to the annual report of the DISS. According DISS was the Ministry of Defence in 2014 the target of “massive espionage attacks” that could be recycled in some cases to ‘specific state actors, “which is slang for national governments. The networks of the Ministry of Defence and those of the allies of the Netherlands, as well as suppliers of Defense are attacked daily by the DISS.

According to the Secret Service was, to my knowledge, none of the successful attacks. The report shows that the most popular phishing attack methods and ‘watering holes’ were. When watering holes are websites that are visited by the target feature exploit kits with malware, so attackers can infect the computer of the target.

DISS does not specify which countries are behind the attacks. It is often pointed out in these attacks to China or Russia, but from the Snowden-disclosures show that the United States and the United Kingdom did not hesitate to attack allies.
