The Telegraph reports that Chinese spies likely were able to access the Facebook account of NATO chief Adm. James Stavridis:
This high-level breach comes at a time when Congress is debating legislation to tighten cyber security. "[John] McCain's bill, the Secure IT Act, would encourage companies to share information about cyber threats with government agencies, including the National Security Agency (NSA) and U.S. Cyber Command," the Hill reports.
Naturally, the ACLU is raising concerns about the legislation. "The bill would allow the NSA to collect the Internet records of civilians who are not suspected of doing anything wrong," an ACLU representative told the Hill.
And in this case, the left wing group might have a point, though it is becoming increasingly clear that something needs to be done in order to enhance cyber security.
