According to investigations, the cyber attack in the USA last Friday were apparently caused by young amateurs neither politically nor religiously motivated or other.
Friday, 21st October, a cyber attack seriously disturbed the USA. Millions of people were without access especially to Twitter, Amazon, eBay, Netflix or Airbnb. Media sites were also affected (CNN, New York Times, Boston Globe, Financial Times, The Guardian…). The authorities are worried and want to know the origin as fast as possible. The identity and the geographical origin of the perpetrators remain unknown.
Eric o’Neill, former responsible for the fight against espionage at the FBI (Federal Police), said: “When I see such an attack, I tell myself that this is a state that is behind”. China and Russia have been the main target.
In recent years many similar attacks have occurred.
