On Last Week Tonight John Oliver talks about the “Biggest Cyber Attack on the United States – EVER!” according to CNN. Oliver hints that references to the ‘historic’ monster attack last week may have been over-hyped, saying, “It’s already scary enough without leftover graphics from ‘The Matrix.’
The U.S. is pointing fingers to the Chinese military, then skipping ahead to create a motive. CNN suggests hackers might be looking for personal information of a sensitive nature, that might embarrass employees to the extent that they would turn into informants or even spies.
John Oliver has a much better idea. They are wasting their time hacking personnel files. Hack the personnel files from the Department of Fisheries all you want; just do not expose the places we’ve been. If you hack our browsing histories, we’re your spies for life!
