US Cyber Command: Documents Reveal Pentagon Launching Covert Cyber Attacks

“Under an extensive effort code-named GENIE, The Washington Post disclosed, “US computer specialists break into foreign networks so that they can be put under surreptitious US control.”

According to top secret budget documents provided by Snowden, the Post revealed the “$652 million project has placed ‘covert implants,’ sophisticated malware transmitted from far away, in computers, routers and firewalls on tens of thousands of machines every year, with plans to expand those numbers into the millions.”

“Of the 231 offensive operations conducted in 2011,” the Post reported, “nearly three-quarters were against top-priority targets, which former officials say includes adversaries such as Iran, Russia, China and North Korea and activities such as nuclear proliferation. The document provided few other details about the operations.”

As other media outlets previously reported, the Post noted that US secret state agencies “are making routine use around the world of government-built malware that differs little in function from the ‘advanced persistent threats’ that US officials attribute to China.”
