Secretary Reveals Russian Hack of Pentagon

Russian hackers are found to have infiltrated not only the White House but also the U.S. Department of Defense.
 
US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said in a speech at Stanford University Thursday that Russian hackers infiltrated the department's unclassified network earlier this year.
 
Carter said a cyber defense team noticed the breach within 24 hours and tracked down the hackers before kicking them off the network. 
 
He spoke at Stanford as part of a visit to lay out an updated Pentagon strategy on stronger cyber security. 
 
The new strategy will for the first time reveal plans to use cyber operations in dealing with enemy forces. 
 
The new strategic paper has also pointed to Russia and China as the biggest threats in cyberspace saying they have greatly advanced their cyber warfare capabilities.
 
On North Korea and Iran, the paper said their cyber potentials are relatively less advanced but the two countries publicly harbor hostile intents against the U.S.
