McAfee announced that a single nation-state has been conducting worldwide cyber attacks over the past five years. A majority of experts believe that the evidence can only point to China. A total of 72 networks were infiltrated including the governments of the United States, India and South Korea. In other news, the cost to organizations due to cybercrime is up 56% from a year ago.
