Vatican Said To Be Victim in Recent Cyber Attack

wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Late last week, security researchers from Radware discovered a new Trojan Key Logger on a system of one of its clients named “Admin.HLP” that captures sensitive user information and attempts to export it to a server in a remote location.

At the time Radware would not comment on who the victim was, but soon after, a source told FOXBusiness that the Victim was the Vatican.

The governing body of the Catholic Church is not commenting on the issue, however. “No comment,” is all that was said in a two-word email from the Vatican Press Office on August 31 sent in response to an inquiry from Catholic News Agency.

The Vatican has been hit with cyber attacks in the past, including DDoS attacks and Website defacements by Anonymous. It's unclear who was behind these recent targeted attacks, however."

They should better be careful... there are so many secrets that they need to protect (e.g. how much money do they really have and why they refused to pay back the victims of all the abuses)!
