Uncovered Operation Shady RAT is biggest Series of Cyber Attacks

Security company McAfee uncovers largest hacking campaign to date.

The U.N. and over 70 other organizations have been hacked over the last five years. Security company McAfee uncovered this series of cyber attacks known as Operation Shady RAT. McAfee found the trace of these massive hackings in logs of a command and control server. The hackers infiltrated networks and stayed there to collect and steal data for long periods of times. 

The hacking could be backed by a government, but no hard evidence is found yet. It is not clear what happened to the very diverse data and who will be using it. The only thing that is clear is that really massive amounts of proprietary data changed hands. There is big article about Operation Shady RAT on Vanity Fair.
