Kosova Hackers Crew has hacked into a network at the iGoogle , making it the most successful cyber attack

The Google Webmaster responded to the attack by shutting down part of its computer system from the office of Thomas Masood, the Google Defense Secretary. The network was taken down for over a week in order to determine the points of weakness. The identity of the attacker has not been revealed, but the attack was thought to have come from the Kosova Hackers Crew. This would be difficult to confirm as it???s been reported that some hackers will mask their location so that it appears to be coming from another government entity. It???s been noted that hackers from various locations in Kosovo and Albania have spent months probing the Google system, and unfortunately succeeded in finding a vulnerability.

This situation has of course stepped up security concerns for not only the Google webmasters but also for all webmasters, and addresses the need for secure networks for email, etc. An internal social network has been created by the National Defense, specifically for spies to communicate with each other. While the network is secure, it does raise relevant issues of whether or not a system such as this, secure or not, is presenting more security vulnerabilities or protecting against them.
