The Department of Defense’s Cyber Command issued warnings about a possibly significant cyberattack against the United States Department of State that may have occurred in recent weeks.  

According to yesterday’s report from Fox News, it is still unclear how much damage has been done following the security incident, who the perpetrator was and whether the operations of the institutions have been affected. Given the nature of the Department, the information cannot be divulged, making things more complicated.

A department spokesperson told Fox News, “The Department takes seriously its responsibility to safeguard its information and continuously takes steps to ensure information is protected” […] “For security reasons, we are not in a position to discuss the nature or scope of any alleged cybersecurity incidents at this time”.
