Hacking Team suspects that government behind massive hack is




The Italian security firm Hacking Team suspect it has been hacked by a government. According to the director of the company was the hack so complex that a party with lots of money and manpower behind the hack should have been.

Why the hack was so complex, says the director not in the interview in the Italian newspaper La Stampa. The intrusion into the systems of the security company said the attacker or attackers 400GB of data booty, which was then only available through a torrent and then through an online searchable database on WikiLeaks.

The claim that it would have been a complex hack, it is in the interest of Hacking Team. If it turned out that the company’s own systems would have poorly protected, that would be the company’s reputation no good. The director, David Vincenzetti, saying it may have been an organization with many resources besides a government which also was behind the hack. Hacking Team seems not yet know who was behind the digital burglary.

Vincenzetti claims Hacking Team will issue an update within days of its software, allowing authorities to start monitoring their suspects again. Hacking Team advised customers after hack to disable the software because the hack also the source of much software was seized.
