Tue October, 2020, Age: 3 years
In a rare public move, the U.S. National Security Agency has detailed 25 known cyber vulnerabilities frequently used by Chinese state-sponsored hackers in an effort to alert computer security officials to update their systems. The notice from the NSA may serve as motivation to entities that could be targeted by Chinese hackers to apply the fixes. The advisory is part of a recent effort by the historically secretive agency to increase network security across the country and bolster public trust in the agency. The NSA also highlighted the risk these flaws pose to U.S. government networks, including national security systems, defense contractors and Defense Department networks.
