Cyberattacks against U.S. Systems Not Just from China

The U.S. national counterintelligence executive, Joel Brenner, recently said in a CNN interview that the foreign intelligence organizations from 140 countries are actively attempting to penetrate U.S. government and corporate computer systems.

"Joel Brenner, the national counterintelligence executive, told CNN it is not accurate to blame only the Chinese government for recent penetrations of government computer systems.

"We get intrusions from all point of the compass. It is really misleading to focus on one country," he said. "They are coming from everywhere now. It is a pervasive problem."
