FBI Warns Of Malware Attack Aimed At U.S. Businesses
The FBI has issued a warning to companies about a new cyberattack that has already hit several companies in the U.S.By A.J. Feather | December 2, 2014
The FBI sent out a notice Monday night warning U.S. businesses that hackers have used malicious software to launch a set of attacks across the United States.
The release warns the malware is capable of overriding data currently stored on hard drives, potentially rendering them inoperable. The malware is also said to be capable of taking down entire networks.
While the FBI's notice is pretty vague and doesn't name any specific companies, Gizmodo says all signs point to the attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment last week.
