The Hacks

Mar 21, 2023

For the longest time, Tom and Chunga have talked about the potential of a large scale breach of U.S. Government Infrastructure by a foreign country, and what the fallout would look like. Ultimately, Tom and Chunga were of the opinion that this type of intrusion would end up hurting the offending country economically and as a result, wouldn't be worth the effort.

This past weekend, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency announced that the Federal Government has been hacked by an un-named nation state. They were able to successfully breach U.S Infrastructure by exploiting a 4-year old CVE, from 2019 with a severity level of 9.8 out of 10.  

There are many questions that still have not been answered. Such as, which government agency's have been compromised and how bad is the damage. Currently, those questions have not been answered. All Chunga wants to know is, who was responsible and what were they trying to find?  Tom says it's a more complex issue that that and they're most likely trying to accomplish several things as opposed to just a few.  What does he thing those things are?  Listen now to find out!
