Global security company Lockheed Martin recently had its network hacked by unknown individuals. The company was able to quickly respond to the cyber-attacks and no information was compromised. U.S. government agencies are being forced to make cyber-security a top priority. In other news, the Iranian government is working towards building a closed Internet that could cut the country off from the rest of the web. The national Internet aims to spread throughout the country within two years. Even if the plan succeeds, can Iran stop outside connections from being made? And finally, new research finds that mobile web browsing is becoming an easy way for scammers to steal your information. When one application or site asks to connect to another, make sure to check the URL that it sends you to. Mobile browsers won’t tell you if the site your visiting is secure and hackers are exploiting it.
